The Cleveland Roller Mill
Museum is located in a flour mill built at the end of the
19th century and operated until the early 1940's in the beautiful
Mora Valley in northeastern New Mexico. The mill's machinery
remains intact and has been restored significantly to the point
that it can be operated for demonstration purposes.
The museum preserves the history
of milling in northeastern New Mexico through photographs, documents
and physical exhibits and makes this unique history available
to all who wish to see it. We now are placing this history
and images on the web in order to enrich the lives of people
who are unable to travel to the mill site to view the museum
A 'molino' (Spanish for grist
mill), on loan from the Palace of the Governors in Sante Fe is
located on the mill grounds and open for public inspection.
The Spanish first mentioned their use of molino technology in
New Mexico in a report dated from 1601.
Every year since 1987, on the
Saturday and Sunday of the Labor Day weekend, the museum hosts
a millfest which consists of an arts and craft show, music, food,
and historical presentations in front of the museum and the operation
of the mill and its machinery. Admission to the grounds
is free. During the Millfest, the museum has a nominal
charge of $3.00 for adults, $1.00 for youth 18 and under.
The admission fee helps to maintain the museum and exhibits and
any donations made to the museum are tax deductible.
Historian available for group
and school tours.
