Brief Description1898 Flour Mill and History Museum
DescriptionStanding tall on the banks of the Smoky Hill River, the McPherson County Old Mill Museum preserves the early heritage of McPherson County. Come visit our beautifully restored 1898 flour mill, The Smoky Valley Roller Mill. The Smoky Valley Roller Mill was built in 1898 and was in operation until 1955, sending flour to places nationwide. Once a year, the machinery of the historic mill springs to life during Millfest, held the first weekend in May. Heritage Square is home to seven historic buildings including a one room school house, Sweadal-the first courthouse in McPherson County, the Erickson Brother's Shop where the first workable telephone dial was invented and the first local public school building. The crown jewel of Heritage Square is the Swedish Pavilion: prefabricated in Sweden as the Swedish exhibit building for the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Heritage Square also contains our Heritage Center building containing exhibits, a livery stable and farm machinery. Be sure to come visit us the first full weekend in May, when we do indeed turn on our flour mill and give tours of the running mill to ages 13+. Local crafters, regional musicians and great food make this a fun weekend not to be missed!
