Winter Quarters/Florence Mill
The Florence Mill is Nebraska's oldest business site & only structure linking the 1800's Pioneer Trails with Territorial settlement. By 1998 it was almost lost. Instead, it made a career change from an obsolete mill & elevator into a cultural attraction connecting agriculture, history & art. Today it hosts public events, musical, cultural, historical presentations & plays an important role in the vibrancy of the Florence neighborhood. 2018 is the 20th Anniversary of the mill's rebirth!
"I always enjoy visits to the Florence Mill and the festive atmosphere of the Farmers Market makes the trip even more worthwhile. I enjoy the variety of vendors at the market as well as being able to see the current exhibit at the ArtLoft on the 2nd floor of the Mill." - Gail S.
"We have lived in the area north of The Florence Mill for 17 years. I have seen the Mill convert from a run down, worn out building to a vibrant asset to the Florence / Omaha community. This latest venture for the mill, that is, hosting a farmers' market, is a neat deal for everyone -- the Mill, the vendors and the customers. The market is an opportunity for the Florence and the greater north Omaha area to have access to fresh, locally grown produce." - John G.
