The Ceresota Building is a historic structure located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is an iconic example of early 20th-century industrial architecture and has played a significant role in the city's milling history.

History[edit | edit source]

The Ceresota Building was constructed in 1908 by the Northwestern Consolidated Milling Company, one of the major milling companies in Minneapolis during the early 1900s. The building was named after the company's popular brand of flour, Ceresota Flour, which was well-known for its high quality.

Architecture[edit | edit source]

The building is a prime example of the Chicago School of architecture, characterized by its steel-frame construction and large windows. The design of the Ceresota Building reflects the industrial needs of the time, with a focus on functionality and durability. The structure is notable for its brick exterior and the large "Ceresota" sign that once adorned its facade.

Significance[edit | edit source]

The Ceresota Building is significant for its association with the milling industry, which was a cornerstone of Minneapolis's economy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The building is also an important example of industrial architecture from this period and has been recognized for its historical and architectural value.

Current Use[edit | edit source]

Today, the Ceresota Building has been repurposed for modern use. It houses a variety of commercial and office spaces, while still retaining much of its historical character. The adaptive reuse of the building is a testament to the city's commitment to preserving its industrial heritage.
