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.
