The Sterling Flour Mill

Creator(s): Sodbusters Archives and Museum

Built by hand over an eleven month period back in the early 20th century, the Sterling Flour Mill soon became the "hub of the wheel" with spokes leading out to the surrounding district of Strome, Alberta. Farmers came from miles around to have their wheat processed into flour and feed, showing the ingenuity of the homesteader and his family, and bearing us along through the changes of this country - from oxcart to airplane. This exhibit preserves the memories of our forefathers and shows the world how hard work, when honestly pursued, can build a dream without the luxury of today's modern technology.
