Long Description:
Site of huge 7-story flour mill, "The Queen Bee Mill," built from the Sioux Quartzite quaried here along the banks of waterfalls on the Big Sioux River in Sioux Falls, SD. The water from the river generated 800 horsepower for the mill, which first operated in 1881, after nearly being destroyed earlier that year by a flood on the Big Sioux. Remnants of the old mill still provide the visitor with enough clues for an minds-eye view of the original.
