The One Historic New Mexico Mill That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Traveled Back In Time

The Cleveland Roller Mill is the largest functioning flour mill of its kind in the whole of the Southwest, and it’s right here in New Mexico. In the 1980s, the mill was converted into a museum but it remains in working order. Now it’s only put in motion over the Labor Day weekend.
