The Cleveland Roller Mill is the only flour mill of its size and type that has been restored to operating condition (for demonstration purposes) in the southwestern United States. The mill played a prominent role in Mora County’s wheat farming industry in the first half of the 20th century. There also were a number of other mills in the region operating at that time. In 1910 over 500,000 bushels of wheat were produced in the county. This history is explained in the Mill Museum’s exhibits that provide an historical overview of north central New Mexico, emphasizing the wheat farming and milling industry that existed in Mora County until World War II. The museum is located 2 miles n/nw of Mora, NM, miler marker 31 just off NM hwy 518. The museum is open memorial day weekend to labor day weekend on weekends only from 10am to 3pm. The season finishes up with the annual Mill fest. Mill fest is a 2 day community event that draws folks from all over. It features arts, crafts, food, continuous musical entertainment as well as mill tours. The Mill is in operation during the fest.
