Visit Minneapolis: Mills Ruins Park


Mills Ruins Park was built amongst ruins of old mills of powerful businesses such as General Mills and Pillsbury.  It is adjacent to the Stone Arch Bridge, and exposed waterpower features give a glimpse of an historic era.




I thought it was really cool to see the old mill ruins, as I imagined what life was like in the area when the flour mills were in operation.  

The crumbling walls and vacant buildings alongside the river that once powered the mills were both fascinating and a bit eerie at the same time.



There is a museum for those who wish to learn more about the flour mills, but unfortunately we did not have time to make a visit.

Strolling through the park to take a peek into history was still a nice way to spend some time in Minneapolis!
