A century-old ghost sign for Royal House Flour was preserved after a building is built above and through it! Looking from the north annex elevator toward the headhouse.
If you know what BTI stands for, please leave a comment.
A chalkboard halfway to the headhouse is untouched since the mill closed. It still has the cheat sheets!
General Mills bought Consolidated Elevator’s “D” in 1943 and renamed it “A,” though no additional elevators have followed from that firm to date. Visible on the right is the first annex, built along with the elevator in 1909.
Almost all of the doors and windows on the ground floor have been boarded, leaving the ground level very dark.

The spiral staircase ends in the basement, where two oil tanks (for the lantern) and a freshwater tank (for the Keeper) were stored. The basement consists of two long arched vaults like this.
