description

This Globe Mills building was constructed in 1910 where it was used as a flour mill. Globe Mills was a large company with mills spread throughout the American West in the early 1900′s. Globe Mills was eventually bought out by Pillsbury in 1940. Something interesting about this building is that it was a popular location for El Paso residents to congregate and watch battles from the Mexican Revolution across the border.
