Inside Hayden Flour Mill

Carolyn Mendoza is amazed at the pipes overhead
There are pipes curving everywhere on the ceiling. Think of gobs of spaghetti and you get the picture. We don't know the function of all those chutes, valves, generators, hoses, ladders, tubing and belts but it must have been very noisy and dusty with flour powder everywhere. What would OSHA think?

 One of my favorite items is the safe. Mary Garbaciak shows us the date of 1849. What stories that safe could tell.

Tour chair Mary Garbaciak points out the 1849 date.

Beautiful Victorian scroll painting inside and out.
