This Historic Flour Mill Is Now The Most Unique Motel In Sheridan, Wyoming
Sheridan, Wyoming, might just be the best little town in the West —
and we’re not the only ones saying it! If you’re looking for a fun place for a family-friendly getaway, a friends’ trip, or a romantic vacation, it’s hard to beat this vibrant town that’s packed with history and things to do. While most people have heard of the historic and haunted Sheridan Inn, if you’re looking for a place to stay without a side of spirits, you’ll want to book a room at the unique Mill Inn.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Back in the 1800s, the Sheridan Flour Milling Company owned more than a dozen grain elevators stretching all across the Rocky Mountains and high prairie in Montana and Wyoming.
Their first mill was built in Sheridan, in 1890, and served to mill local wheat and grain to make flour. Thirty years later, the downtown Sheridan mill was destroyed by a devastating fire. Soon, though, the company rebounded and built and even bigger and more impressive facility on Coffeen Avenue. They spared no expense, using the latest technology in both milling and fire safety, and soon, they were churning out 1,000 barrels of flour a day. They shipped worldwide and helped keep the world fed during World War II. By the 1970s, though, the milling industry had hit a rough patch, and the mill was sold. It was converted into a motel, and in 1992, sold to the Moody family. Today, it operates as the most unique hotel in the Bighorn Mountains.
The Moody Family has created this hotel as a tribute to history and culture in the Bighorns and Sheridan, specifically. Like their predecessors, they have spared no detail, and continually work to make this former mill a delightful place to get away.
