MNSAH is pleased to announce the introduction of a new addition to our programs – the Pop-Up Tour!! Pop-Up Tours take advantage of a limited opportunity to tour an important property. 

Our first Pop-Up Tour features the Pillsbury A-Mill located along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. The rehabilitation of the building is nearly complete and we will have an opportunity to tour the building before residents begin to move in. The Leroy Buffington-designed mill is unique because it contains original milling equipment and still retains an active mill race. Access is now available to the building’s rooftop where we will have a never-before-seen view of the historic mill district. Our tour guide will be John Stark of the BKV Group.  

When:   Monday, June 29, from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m.

Where:  Meet at 301 Main Street Southeast in front of the A-Mill

Cost:  Free to MNSAH members

Registration:  Because space is limited, register by email with Karen Duncan at by Friday, June 26. She will confirm your registration. (If it is not possible to arrive by 4:15 p.m., check with Karen as there may be an opportunity to tour the building later in the afternoon.)  

Parking:  Parking is available at meters on the street or in a ramp at the intersection of 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue Southeast. (At one time, the meters on 2nd Street were only enforced until late afternoon.)
