Mill City Museum Facts
"Mill City Museum opened in 2003 on the banks of the Mississippi River. It was built within the ruins of the Washburn A Mill. In 1983, the mill was named a National Historic Landmark. A fire engulfed the then-vacant building in 1991, leaving only the interior concrete and limestone walls. Shortly after, the Minnesota Historical Society announced plans to develop a museum within the remaining structure."
