The Cleveland Roller Mill Museum’s summer hours will be weekends (Saturday and Sunday); Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend, 10 am to 3 pm.

The last weekend of the season (Labor Day Weekend) features Cleveland Mill-fest, which is to be held on Saturday and Sunday of that weekend. This year the event is to be held on August 31 and September 1; 10 am to 5 pm both days. The events features arts and crafts, native foods, and continuous entertainment. The water powered mill is also in continuous operation during the fest and in itself a big part of the event.

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 just off NM Hwy. 518 two miles north of Mora, New Mexico near the village of Cleveland. The Museum is located 160 miles north of Albuquerque, 35 miles south of Angel Fire; 32 miles northwest of Las Vegas; 100 miles north of Santa Fe and 45 miles southwest of Taos.

  • Met friends from Austin, TX at Millfest, Labor Day week end which is on the grounds of the Museum. The mill is open to the public for self guided tours, but I recommend the guided tour($6.00...

  • Very interesting and well preserved.
  • Right now the roller mill is only open on weekends! Admission is inexpensive at $3 each, and well worth it! We were the only ones there and got a guided tour. The mill is a marvel of a time past, it involves history, sociology, economics, industry, science as well as family. The mill tour gives you a sense of our time in space and is much more than just a mechanical marvel.
