Description

The “Old Miller’s House,” serving as a residence for mill workers, was built before 1774. In the early 19th
century, it was demolished and replaced with the present, single-story
building. In 1945, just like the granaries on the Młyńska Island, it
became the property of the State Treasury, being leased by the State
Grain Works until 1974. Starting from 1975, it had been leased and in
1997, it became the property of the Leon Wyczółkowski Regional Museum in
Bydgoszcz, designated initially for Departments of Ethnography and
Archeology. Today, there is an information office of the Museum.In
1786-88, a watermill with six flour milling lines (known as Panzer’s
Mill) was built in the southeast part of the Młyń­ska Island. In 1828,
it was reconstructed; three new flour lines and millstones were added,
among others. The present building was constructed in 1861 as a
steam-powered mill with eight milling lines. It was called Camphaus’
Mill, although its red facade made that it is known today as the Red
Granary. After 1945, it became the property of the State Treasury,
leased by the State Grain Works until 1974. Starting from 1979, it had
been leased and in 1997, it became the property of the Leon Wyczółkowski
Regional Museum in Bydgoszcz. Due to its bad technical condition,
mainly seasonal exhibitions of contemporary art had been presented here.
Today, it houses the Modern Art Gallery.
