Completed in 1908, the new mill was financed by many of the early residents of Minden. Initially, it could process 100 barrels of flour daily from the local grain. Its four silos held 65,000 bushels of grain. In 1921 the mill was described as "one of the biggest milling concerns in the state, with a reputation for excellence". Beside flour, a line of chicken mash and cattle feed was produced. The Mill ceased to operate in the late 1960's and was purchased by Bently Nevada Inc. in 1975. The building was designated to the Federal Registry of Historic Buildings in 1978.
