Hutchinson entrepreneur William Kelly organized the Kelly Milling Company in 1906 and continued expanding his operations into the 1920s. The plant operated during a time of great transition in the milling industry as the process evolved from simple stone grinding by local millers to the mass-production of flour by milling conglomerates for an international market. The mill complex includes an office building, warehouse, power station, and garage. It is nominated for its association with early 20th century agriculture and industry.
