Thirty-nine years ago yesterday, the Magic Kingdom and Walt Disney World opened its gates to the world. To celebrate, this month A Sign Its Saturday will feature more signs from the Magic Kingdom. This morning we give you, Harper's Mill.
Harper Goff, for whom the mill is named, was an artist, musician and actor best known for his association with the Walt Disney Company, though he did enjoy success with other projects outside of Disney as well. He was a major contributor of concept art for Disneyland and areas of Walt Disney World. He was also a member of the Firehouse Five + Two, playing banjo. He was honored posthumously as a Disney Legend in 1993.
