Mill City Museum

Vertical Tabs

Introduction

An attraction for all ages, the museum chronicles the flour milling industry that dominated world flour production for a half-century and fueled the growth of Minneapolis, recognized across the nation and around the world as "Mill City."

Built within the ruins of the National Historic Landmark Washburn A Mill, the museum provides a multi-sensory, interactive journey. The story of flour milling and its impact on Minneapolis, the nation and the world comes to life in this one-of-a-kind museum.

Background

As the newest addition to the Minnesota Historical Society's statewide network of museums, historic sites and trails, Mill City Museum, which opened in September 2003, describes in compelling, multi-sensory and hands-on ways how industry, nature and people came together to make Minneapolis the "Flour Milling Capital of the World" from 1880 to 1930.

The museum is an architectural showpiece, rising eight stories within the limestone ruins of the Washburn A Mill, a National Historic Landmark that was once the largest flour mill in the world and one of two dozen Minneapolis mills that lined the banks of the Mississippi River.

As flour milling reached its peak in Minneapolis in the late 19th century, it inspired an explosion of productivity, fed by technical and marketing innovation. In that sense, the story of how flour milling propelled the city and the region into the modern era has similarities with that of Silicon Valley's rise around the microchip in California 100 years later. Both developments had a profound influence on their respective industries and regions - and on the everyday lives of people around the world.

Flour milling didn't grow up in Minneapolis by accident. The Mississippi River - and specifically the river's only natural waterfall, St. Anthony Falls - shaped the city and its history. And St. Anthony Falls, viewed as a prized source of energy, had long attracted people to the region. Originally, power from the falls had supported the lumber industry by powering its sawmills. The flour mills came next. By 1880, the falls' massive power had been harnessed to drive the turbines in Minneapolis' flour mills, grinding wheat from the vast western plains into flour. Rail lines, extending west from Minneapolis, delivered grain to the mills. Trains traveling north to Duluth's port and east to the nation's major population centers carried the flour to market. An influx of immigrants provided the labor.

Mill City Museum is a lively, "must-see" cultural attraction. Its exhibits are designed to involve visitors of all ages in an engaging, interactive discovery involving all five senses. Guests learn about the past in the familiar narrative style, reading and hearing the stories of colorful people and events. In addition, visitors are able to "touch" the region's history in ways unique to Mill City Museum.

Mill City Museum Highlights

  • Flour Tower A media show in an eight-story elevator ride features the stories of employees who worked in the mill from the 1940s through the mid-1960s when it closed; historic film and photographs; and the dramatic use of lighting, sound and special effects. The ride provides a memorable trip back in time - and an appreciation for the powerful, noisy process of transforming grain into flour.
  • Water Lab Waterpower from St. Anthony Falls drove the mills. Visitors don rain gear as they learn about the river's vital role in the logging and lumber industry that earlier fueled the Minneapolis economy - and later the flour milling industry that relied on the falling water to run turbines and generate power.
  • Rail Corridor An 1879 wooden boxcar is the focal point of exhibits showing how railroad networks delivered grain from farms to mill - and flour from mill to market.
  • Baking Lab Milling operations tested and perfected their flours in areas that might be thought of as the original test kitchens. In Mill City Museum's Baking Lab, visitors grind wheat, bake bread, conduct experiments and package food. And, they're able to watch professional baking demonstrations.
  • Recipe for a Mill City A giant recipe box with a series of oversized cards feed visitors some absorbing history about the Mississippi and its influence on the city of Minneapolis - in bite-sized doses. Topics include lumber and flour milling as well as more recent developments: the decline of the river's east bank after the mills closed and its recent urban resurgence as a place to live, work and play. The city's evolution is the subject of videotaped interviews with a range of the city's workers and residents - from school children to Minneapolis Grain Exchange traders.
  • Meet the Machines Authentic 19-century milling machines, connected to an overhead network of pulleys, belts and wheels, is on display. Hands-on models and diagrams explain how such devices as roller mills, cleaners, sifters, dust collectors and flour packers were used to prepare flour for the market. Inventors, mill hands, investors and engineers - the people behind the machines - are introduced.
  • Harvesting Wheat What type of wheat to plant, whether to use pesticides, where and when to sell? Visitors to this exhibit wrangle with the questions that, to this day, face wheat farmers. Recorded first-person accounts from wheat farmers past and present, a late 19-century traction engine and the opportunity to sit down at a huge dinner table outfitted to feed a threshing crew on a bonanza farm also helps visitors appreciate the role of the farmer.
  • Global Exchange Technologies developed in Europe were used to their utmost by Minneapolis flour mills, eventually allowing them to produce flour in quantities that saturated European markets. Visitors learn the story of this historic technology transfer - as well as flour milling's role in international trade, food relief and immigration. The exhibit also examines how recent immigrants to Minneapolis have incorporated local products into their diets.
  • Wheat Emporium Wheat has served as an important icon through the ages. This display explores its use as an icon in household items, paintings, currency, clothing and other objects from a range of cultures.
  • Promoting Mill Products Producing flour was one thing, selling it another. Minneapolis' milling industry gave rise to such commercial powerhouses as General Mills, Pillsbury, Cargill, International Multifoods and Malt-O-Meal. Visitors to this exhibit learn how Minnesota food producers have influenced the way the world eats through advertising and promotion. It includes vintage TV commercials, advertisements, packaging and marketing.
  • Rooftop Observation Deck Visitors to the museum's rooftop observation deck gain a panoramic view of the Mississippi River and St. Anthony Falls. Plus, they have a bird's-eye view of the historic Stone Arch Bridge and Mill Ruins Park - and the emerging urban landscape of renovated and new buildings. Lakota artist Daryl No Heart's panorama of the Falls of St. Anthony before industrial development, displayed here, helps visitors draw a contrast between then and now.
Architectural Background

Originally designed by Austrian engineer William de la Barre and declared the world's largest flour mill after its completion in 1880, the structure housing Mill City Museum is a National Historic Landmark. Known as the Washburn A Mill, it was nearly destroyed by fire in 1991.

After the City of Minneapolis, working through the Minneapolis Community Development Agency, cleaned up the rubble and fortified the mill's charred walls, the Minnesota Historical Society announced its intention to construct a milling museum and education center within the ruins.

Faced with how to preserve the ruins of this historically significant site while building a modern museum, the Society turned to Thomas Meyer, principal of Minneapolis architectural firm Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. A 30-year industry veteran, Meyer developed a concept that melded the historic integrity of the mill structures with modern components. Construction on the museum began in March 2001.

When possible, Meyer's design has left intact many features of the original mill, including flour bins, milling machinery, the engine house, rail corridor and a wheat house. He also has used limestone, brick, concrete and steel within the museum to emphasize its industrial origins.

Among the new architectural features is an eight-story glass facade overlooking the Mississippi River. True-to-scale graphics of the milling machines are featured on the glass façade to give visitors an idea of how massive the milling process was. The facade forms a reflective backdrop for the weathered masonry walls that frame a 100-by-100 foot, open-air courtyard formed by the 1991 fire. Ruins of the historic mill are showcased in the courtyard through significant excavation efforts.

Interior spaces include hands-on exhibits such as a Baking Lab, Water Lab and the Flour Tower - an eight-story elevator ride that enables visitors to experience the powerful, noisy, industrial process that turned wheat into flour. A rooftop observation deck offers sweeping views of the Mississippi River, St. Anthony Falls, the Stone Arch Bridge and Mill Ruins Park. Mill City Museum also includes a gift shop and café.

The History of Milling in Minneapolis

The birth of the flour-milling industry in the mid-19th century was the second act in the industrial drama that took place at St. Anthony Falls, the only significant naturally occurring waterfall on the Mississippi River, and established Minneapolis as a major U.S. city. Sawmills came first, in the 1850s, but were supplanted within decades by the flour mills. It was the extraordinary power-generating potential of the falls' 50-foot drop that brought the two industries to Minneapolis.

Flour milling's heyday outlasted that of saw milling by several decades. Beginning in 1880 and for 50 years thereafter, Minneapolis was known as the "Flour Milling Capital of the World." At the industry's peak, 20 stone flour mills stood along a covered canal, flowing with water drawn from the river above the falls. When the Washburn A Mill opened in 1880 - two years after a predecessor and several other mills were destroyed in a catastrophic fire that claimed 18 lives - it was the most technologically advanced and the largest in the world. At peak production, it ground enough flour to make 12 million loaves of bread in a day.

The city grew up around the mills, which received grain via rail lines stretching across the Northern Plains grain belt into the Dakotas and Canada. Trains also carried the milled flour to Duluth and to eastern U.S. destinations both for export and domestic distribution.

Immigrants - part of an enormous influx during the period - kept farms, railroads and mills running. In 1870, the city's population was 13,000. Twenty years later it had grown to nearly 165,000. Businesses supporting milling, such as bag making, barrel making and iron works, also employed the city's new citizens.

The entire flour-milling complex spawned a host of innovations in manufacturing and processing. In flour milling, the Washburn, Crosby and Pillsbury families implemented innovations that both improved the quality of flour made from wheat grown in the northern plains and increased production efficiencies.

The need to sell the enormous output of the mills inspired creative approaches in marketing and advertising to generate more demand for flour and for the mills' product innovations, such as cake mixes. General Mills, for example, introduced Betty Crocker in 1921, today an icon in the history of marketing.

In the industry's early days in Minneapolis, almost all sales were of "family flour," used in home baking and sold in 196-pound family barrels. It wasn't until later that the barrels were replaced by 100, 50 and 25-pound cotton or jute sacks. Home baking declined, however, as more people moved from farm to city. But as they did, the commercial baking industry grew. Estimates are that only five percent of bread consumed in 1900 was bakery-made. By the time the U.S. entered World War I in 1917, it has been estimated that bakeries were making 30 percent of the nation's bread.

After World War I the milling industry in Minneapolis began to decline, chiefly due to federal import-export regulations favoring mills located in cities better situated to process Canadian wheat. In 1930 Buffalo, N.Y., supplanted Minneapolis as the nation's flour-milling capital, producing 11 million barrels to Minneapolis' 10.8 million annually.

As the industry moved out of Minneapolis, the old mills fell into disuse. Many were abandoned and subsequently razed. The Washburn A Mill closed in 1965. Meanwhile, the water from St. Anthony Falls increasingly was put to work generating electricity for the growing city. In 1991 the mill was nearly destroyed by fire.

Working through the Minneapolis Community Development Agency, the city cleaned up the rubble and fortified the charred walls of the mill in the late 1990s. Shortly thereafter, the Minnesota Historical Society announced plans to develop Mill City Museum. Private, corporate, foundation, city, county, state and federal entities all contributed to this $32 million project.

Film: "Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat"

The newest attraction at Mill City Museum, “Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat,” is a lighthearted take on the city’s history by local humorist, playwright and radio personality Kevin Kling. Through photos, film and television footage, his own stories and memories, and animation reminiscent of another Minnesotan – Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam – Kling offers a whirlwind tour of our fair city.

The short film mixes Kling’s trademark laconic humor and shrewd observation with an elegiac description of what makes Minneapolis unique. Kling expounds on the following questions related to the city: “Who started it?” “Why is it here?” “How did it get named?” and “What’s with all the Lutherans?” Along the way, Kling describes characters ranging from the mighty and powerful – Father Hennepin, Franklin Steele, Wilbur Foshay – to the notorious and entertaining – Kid Cann, the Andrews Sisters, Prince. In his words, “A city lives through its people and its spirit is housed in their stories.”

In creating the film, Kling collaborated with a team from the Minnesota Historical Society led by Ellen Miller. Miller approached Kling when the opportunity arose to make a film for Mill City Museum’s new West Engine House theater. She provided him with historical background on Minneapolis history, which Kling adapted into a script. The creative team then plumbed the resources of the Society’s extensive visual archives, collections, museums and multimedia lab to bring the Minneapolis story to life.

Fun Facts
  • More than 12 million loaves of bread were made daily from the wheat milled at the Washburn A Mill during its heyday between 1880 and 1930.
  • Every working day, approximately 175 railroad cars of wheat were processed at the mill.
  • In one year, the mill ground the wheat harvested from 23,000 farms, which extended west to the Rocky Mountains and north into Canada.
  • The flour mills in Minneapolis stimulated a boom in larger farms, and by 1880, 70 percent of Minnesota's cultivated land - almost 4.5 million acres - was planted in wheat. These farms were so vast that it was said a farmer could ride a horse all day and not get to the end of his wheat field.
  • The Falls of St. Anthony were gradually moving upstream, so mill workers had to construct a wooden apron under the falls to stop the damages of erosion. "Pay your respects.to old St. Anthony," the St. Paul Daily Press wrote on Sept. 21, 1866, for soon "the heavy plunge of the amber Mississippi will be heard no more."
  • Lakes and rivers in northern Minnesota that fed the Mississippi were turned into a vast reservoir system that regulated the flow of water to the mills in Minneapolis. The United States Army Corps of Engineers managed the reservoirs located on lakes Winnibigoshish, Leech and Pokegama, as well as the Pine River.
  • In the 1880s, flour milling comprised two-thirds of the city's manufacturing output.
  • Flour milling was celebrated in Minneapolis as the city named its first professional baseball team the "Minneapolis Millers."
  • William de la Barre, chief engineer of the Washburn A Mill, was involved in corporate espionage when he worked at a competing mill in Budapest as a full-time employee. While at work, de la Barre would sketch models of milling equipment that he later brought back and applied in the Minneapolis mill. He also trained workers on milling techniques he witnessed on trips to Budapest, Prague, Paris and Vienna.
  • The Washburn A Mill suffered great loss in its history. It exploded in 1878, killing 18 workers and destroying one-third of the city's milling capacity in one night. It was rebuilt in 1880 but caught on fire in 1928. In 1991, when the building was home to a few tenants and many homeless people, it went up in flames yet again.
  • The population of Minneapolis increased by 1,300 percent between 1870 and 1890 as immigrants moved to the city to work in the mills and supporting industries.
  • Local radio and television station WCCO takes its name from Washburn-Crosby Company.
  • In 1971, the Washburn A Mill was added to the National Register of Historic Places, and in 1983 it was designated a National Historic Landmark.
  • Mill City Museum has been honored with a variety of accolades, including an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects/Minnesota and the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota. It was also named "Best Unique Venue" by Minnesota Meetings & Events magazine. The marketing and design work for the museum has also been recognized with awards from the Public Relations Society of America, the International Association of Business Communicators and the American Institute of Graphic Arts.

Museum Artists

Woven throughout Mill City Museum and its exhibits are unique works by the following local and regional artists:

Daryl No Heart, Rapid City, S.D.
A landscape artist and Lakota Indian, Daryl No Heart shares his interpretation of the St. Anthony Falls area as it looked in its pre-industrial state, before the mills. No Heart painted an original piece, which he reproduced into a 10-foot narrow panoramic. The panoramic will be installed on Mill City Museum's observation deck overlooking the Mississippi River. The two views, past and present, will interact with each other, allowing museum visitors to see how the riverfront has evolved over the past 150 years.

Tom Maakestad, Marine-on-St Croix, Minn.
Landscape artist Tom Maakestad painted a panoramic image of a wheat field and sky to serve as the backdrop for a late-19th century traction engine, a major fixture in the Harvesting Wheat exhibit. Maakestad's original artwork will be reproduced on a larger scale (10 feet by 20 feet) to create a context for the traction engine and suggest the vastness of the wheat growing fields in Minnesota.

Kim Lawler, St. Paul, Minn.
For Mill City Museum's Promoting Mill Products exhibit, scenic painter and muralist Kim Lawler produced a 15-foot, freestanding Bisquick Box with an image of the packaging as seen in 1931 on one side and 1981 on the opposite side. Visitors will be invited to step inside the box to experience signature advertising campaigns from the past and present through TV and radio commercials. Lawler also produced a 6-foot stack of pancakes for a hands-on activity area where children will be encouraged to design their own mill product packaging.

In addition, Lawler designed a three-columned, freestanding structure for the Wheat Emporium, an exhibit that explores how wheat imagery has been used as a potent symbol throughout the ages. Topped with a copper wheat structure, each column is actually a case that displays everyday objects, such as paintings, currency, clothing and dishware that incorporate wheat as a decorative motif.

Kathleen Richert, St. Paul, Minn.
A textile artist and accomplished designer and seamstress, Kathleen Richert produced fabric and felt sculptures of food to be used on the harvest table in the Harvesting Wheat exhibit. Set to look like a table used by threshing crews, Richert's sculptures demonstrate the immense quantity of food needed to sustain the crews. Visitors will be invited to sit down at the table and connect with farmers of the past and present.

Paul Wrench and Becky Schurmann, Minneapolis 
Through sculpture, husband-and-wife team Paul Wrench and Becky Schurmann brought characters introduced throughout Mill City Museum to life. Both working artists, Wrench and Schurmann hand-carved 13 figures from salvaged timber from Humboldt Mill, a neighboring mill of the Washburn A Mill. Carved from white pine, they have been stained and finished and some still contain old nails.

Each sculpture represents individuals integral to the milling empire in the late-19th century. The sculptures include William de la Barre, an Austrian engineer who designed Washburn A Mill; Jean Spielman, a labor organizer; Mary Dodge Woodward, an author; as well as laborers and other prominent figures.
