The Zip Feed Mill was the tallest occupiable structure in South Dakota during its entire existence.
The implosion that took place on the morning of December 3, 2005 did not fully bring the tower down. Conventional demolition using a crane was then employed to fully take down the structure over the next couple of weeks.
After the failed implosion attempt, the tower stood approximately 160 feet tall, and leaned significantly. Locals jokingly named it the "Leaning Tower of Zip" in homage to Torre Pendente in Italy.
The crane for the final demolition was transported from Minneapolis-St. Paul.
