Biography/HistoryJames Sorenson built a flour mill near Daily, North Dakota in 1881 but when it became clear that the mill would never be served by the railroad, Sorenson expanded the business and built a steam-powered roller mill on the Northern Pacific in Sheldon, Ransom County in 1891. The mill in Daily burnt down in 1910.
