Hanford, CA / historic Lacey Milling Co. (1614)

I couldn’t find specifics on the buildings in this picture, but the company itself is the last family-owned flour mill in California and has been in business since 1887 and at the same location for a large part of those years. There’s a very nice history of the company in the Hanford Sentinel that describes how the company started out milling Central Valley wheat for multiple products but with competition from the big companies, has narrowed to being a significant producer of tortilla flour that is preferred by tortilla manufacturing plants across California.

The article mentioned above was written in 2010, so I checked on the current status of the company and found it listed as current with the local chamber of commerce – and you could hear the hum of the mill (it’s close to downtown).
