For more than 50 years, Minneapolis was the world center of the flour milling industry with some of the largest producing mills the world has ever seen. Fueled by St. Anthony Falls, the only water fall on the Mississippi, the area was once a loud and dusty place. Flour milling has long since moved elsewhere, especially with the advent of electrically driven mills, but the mill district continues to live on with other purposes, including condos, restaurants, the Guthrie Theater, and the Minnesota Historical Society's Mill City Museum.
