"Cleveland Roller Mill: Feeding the Mora Valley"

Cleveland, NM: For nearly 100 years the economy of the Mora Valley thrived on farming and milling as the primary source of grain and flour for much of the Western United States. The Cleveland Roller Mill, constructed near the turn of the century would become one of the largest and most successful mills built during this period, and would continue to operate until its closing in 1940. Today, the three story adobe flour mill operates as a museum dedicated to the rich past of farming and milling on which this place once thrived.

Join Donna Howell, and step into the history of the mill in northeastern New Mexico and discover how the land and people of the Mora Valley fed the West. 

This program will be held at the Cleveland Roller Mill Museum, Highway 518-Mile Marker 3, Cleveland, New Mexico, Thursday, August 20, 2015, 7:00 pm.
