— Saint Anthony Falls Heritage Trail —The Pillsbury A Mill, built of Platteville limestone, was the world's largest flour mill when it was completed in 1881. The design by LeRoy S. Buffington is considered a classic of industrial architecture, and the interior of the mill boasted state-of-art technology. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. The mill originally produced 5,000 barrels of flour per day, a capacity that was later increased to more than 17,000 barrels. Pillsbury's Best Flour is still sold around the world.
