The Flour Mill is a great example of the adaptive re-use of a unique historic structure. The 11,000 square foot building was built in 1887 for O.A. Ainsworth and Co. Feed Mill & Grain Storage, and needed extensive work to create the dynamic space found here today. The original storefronts had been removed, all the original windows had been inappropriately replaced, the brick had been painted and poorly constructed additions had been added to the rear.
The renovated space is a wonderful mix of old and new, with exposed beams and brickwork. Arching windows grace the ground floor space and multiple skylights enhance the loft apartments upstairs. Due to the integrity of this renovation the project has qualified for a federal Investment Tax Credit.
