Celebrate Women's History Month with a day devoted to the women of Mill City. Enjoy performances by Mill City Museum History Players portraying 19th and 20th-century women from Minneapolis and the surrounding area. Explore the museum exhibits for stories of women who contributed to Minnesota history and Minneapolis' flour milling, like the female flour packers who began working at the Washburn A Mill in 1902.
Visitors can also dress up and have their picture taken as a 1950s mill worker and make their own paper hat like women flour packers wore in 1919. By 1919, dozens of women worked as packers on the fifth floor of the Utility Building, which became known as “No Man’s Land.”
