Modern day Hayden Flour Mill - outside walking tour

The Hayden Flour Mill was booming after WWII and we learned so much about Tempe history at the Mill on Thursday. Thanks to our great tour chair Mary Garbaciak, we were able to walk all around the building while listening to ASU architect Mark Vincent tell us insider stories.  The new photo/informational lighted signs are also most informative.

Did you know that the Mill is considered Ground Zero for Tempe? All addresses start there.

We are so grateful the City of Tempe owns the building and is working on gaining Historical Preservation Status. It is a most important landmark for the area.

As a thank you to Mark Vincent, Mary presented him with Tastes & Treasures A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona.

More photos and stories of our trip inside the Mill coming soon.
