This summer, The Flour Mill changed its name to The Mill at East McKinney.
The Flour Mill, located at 407 E. Louisiana St., McKinney, has changed its name to The Mill at East McKinney. The mill, built in 1914, serves as an events venue and an office space. It features two event halls and multiple on-site businesses, including a photographer, a hairstylist and a bakery among others. Property manager James Bresnahan said The Mill is a one-stop shop for weddings, and that the name change serves to rebrand the building as its own destination on the east side of McKinney. 214-842-8381. www.eastmckinney.com
