Project Athena - Day 130 (Stairs)

Historic Harmony Mill

My soul can find no staircase to Heaven unless it be through Earth’s loveliness.
— Michelangelo

This industrial building was built in 1886 as a flour mill by some prominent Fort Collins citizens who thought the other flour mills in town were gouging them on grain prices. I am not sure there was a stairwell as part of the original building but I love the overall architecture with numerous windows, a corbelled cornice and these fantastic seven flights of stairs to the top floor.
