Minneapolis Travel Guide: 955 reviews and 1,746 photos
The Stone Arch Bridge was constructed as a railroad bridge in 1883 by James J. Hill. It's 23 arches cross over the Mississippi River and St. Anthony Falls.
It has been converted into a pedestrian/bicycle/trolly bridge.
You can see St. Anthony Falls when you walk across The Stone Arch Bridge. My photograph was taken from the ovservation deck in the U.S. Army Corp. of Engineers Building.
The Gold Medal Flour sign stands high above the old Washburn-Crosby Co. in Downtown Minneapolis which now houses the new Mill City Museum in Mill Ruins Park.
This vacent flour mill caught fire in 1991 but has been preserved and is not home of Mill City Museum.
Night shot of the sign in a snowstorm.
You can see the sign for Pillsbury Flour Mill across the river from Washburn-Crosby Co. as this photo was taken from there
