I love what they are doing at the historic Hayden Flour Mill in Tempe. Historic preservation, adaptive reuse and making a cool community gathering spot where fences once kept the public away. I walked the area a couple of weeks ago and read the information just outside of the walls of the mill while looking around. It really is cool.
The pic of the week for this week shows the mill from the Mill Avenue side. I also have a link to the photos in my Google+ Hayden Flour Mill album and you can check out the slideshow below to see more of the mill…
There will be a grand opening in September and there will be some cool events at the site, for sure. Stick around, I’m sure we will have some more information, soon.
“A field north of the building that was once dirt and rock is now landscaped with trees and a grass field for picnics. A concrete area can be used for seating or to host music or theater groups.” – AZCentral Tempe celebrates Hayden Flour Mill’s rebirth
Remember, Rail Life has a Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr. Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics or videos of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
