Old mill wheel
Many of you have asked about the history of this former flour mill, so I looked it up. A comprehensive article, including the history, and the effort to save the building, can be found here: http://www.santafenewmexican.com/life/features/effort-underway-in-mora-to-save-historic-st-vrain-flour/article_6e2f5439-d076-5b3e-bdb3-28d58f7d282a.html#user-comment-area
It’s always interesting to me how people react to things like this, for example, in the comments of the article, most readers support the effort and are interested in saving it, others say to give up, it’s a safety issue.
Personally, if I lived there, I would support the effort to save a piece of history. Too many things are lost to the prevailing “out with the old, in with the new” philosophy.
