Another historic riverfront sign re-lit, and it’s spectacular! And photos can’t do it justice, you need to see it in person. (this is the river facing sign)
REFURBISHED NORTH STAR SIGN RE-LIT
North Star Woolen Mill, built in 1864, produced scarves, flannels, blankets, and yarns. The company gradually gained a national reputation for making high quality blankets. Despite being a significant source of employment for the city, it declared bankruptcy in 1876. The Minneapolis Mill Company, the predominant company of the west side, bought the facility and operated it until the 1940s.
The sign was taken down for restoration this summer. More on the project:http://millcitytimes.com/…/iconic-north-star-blankets-signs…
