Three new flour mills open in Superior in 1893

At the head of the lakes: Superior, the new flour city


In 1893, with help from the Edward P. Allis Company, three new flour mills opened in Superior. The harbors in Superior and Duluth, Minnesota, made the area a center for domestic and foreign trade. The mills in Superior milled flour for companies whose brands included "Wonder," "Perfecta," and "Marvel." This booklet discusses building of these new mills and grain elevators, and includes many photographs of the buildings and docks, as well as advertisements for local businesses.
