‘Flour Mill – Alma, KS – c.1885’

Flour Mill - Alma, KS - c.1885

This 1880s view of the flour mill located on the Mill Creek on the south end of Alma was taken by Alma photographer, Louis Palenske. When Palenske took this photo, the Pauly brothers owned the mill which was constructed in 1858 by Gottlieb Zwanziger, the founder of the City of Alma. In 1902, Louis Palenske purchased the mill and was its final owner before its closing in 1913.
