DescriptionFactories alongside a river. Freight cars sit on a track between some of the buildings and the river, just on the river bank. The main building in the complex on the right has a sign painted on it that says, "Home of Marvel Flour." The name "Cargill" is painted on another building. (These buildings are the former Listman Mill, which was purchased at some point by Cargill.)
