Hastings Flour Mill
The flour mill in Hastings is nestled on the Vermillion Falls which was featured on the Twin Cities Daily Photo back on October 13, 2006. This building is one of my favorite buildings to look at and just wonder. Take a good look at the building, you will need to get a larger view to see it all, but there are so many different patch work in the bricks that I notice a new addition every time I look at the photo. Each new addition had different colored bricks that shows something was fixed or added or who knows what else. I'm not sure what building was the original building. If I had to take a guess, it would be the larger building on the left of the photo. It has stone blocks instead of today's standard brick. I love how the roof point in that building on the left just blends in with the modern brick to give it a flat roof. I have a few more photos that shows different additions to the flour mill over the years and different views showing more details.
