A wagon load of Cloverland flour formed a float for a parade in Gladstone in the early days of the company. Paul Zimmel is the driver. The slogan read, "Cloverland Flour, good as any, Better than Many." Many farmers drove their teams all day to reach Gladstone to have their grain ground into flour in the building, which was located on the 700 block of Superior Ave. in Gladstone. The farmers had to remain in town overnight and return home the next day.
During World War I, the yard around the mill was filled 24 hours a day with teams and wagon loads of grain to be ground for feed or for flour. Jackson Stephenson, who lived on Michigan Ave and 13th Street, was the main owner of the mill at the time. Its last owner was H.J. Skogquist. The mill was torn down in 1974. The Ballard Dental Clinic now occupies the site.
