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 in person.

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.  Pricing for the Millfest is on the Millfest web page.  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.

Please call us about hosting Weddings and other events at the museum.
