TAC visit Mill City

During MEA break the Adventure Club went on a field trip to Mill City Museum.  While we were there we learned about how important flour was to the city of Minneapolis.  We toured the ruins of an old flour factory and learned how they changed flow of the river to meet the needs of the city and created St. Anthony Falls. We did a scavenger hunt in the gallery to learn about milling industry. We had a great time learning about some of the rich history we have in MN.
