Archibald Mill Ruins
This gristmill complex overlooking the Cannon River was built in the late 1800s by the Archibald family. It was known for producing and marketing high quality flour known as "patent," a star in an area known as the "milling capital of the world." A fire in the 1890s and then again in 1914 destroyed the mill. It was rebuilt and continued milling until 1930. Today, a few walls remain of the old mill complex. A fence surrounds the ruins for safety reasons but the landmark can still easily be seen from outside. To get there take Millensburg Blvd. E to West Ave and make a left on Railway St. You'll see the mill on your right-hand side.
