History And Scrumptious Food Collide In Minnesota’s Old Mill Restaurant
Minneapolis may once have been the flour-milling capital of the world. But that’s not the only place in the Land of 10,000 Lakes with a strong history of milling. Flour and lumber mills once played a big role in the economies of small towns across the state. Few remain today, but that doesn’t mean every trace of them is gone, too. There’s a restaurant in Austin, Minnesota, housed in an old mill. In fact, it’s called Old Mill Restaurant, and it’s a fantastic place to visit for those who want great food and interesting history all in one place. Here’s everything you need to know about this tasty spot:
