Old Dolin Mill

The Old Mill iis the reason why the town of Ruidoso formed. The mill was built after the civil war as a sawmill. Ruidoso was a prime location because it was close to Fort Stanton and had both forest (for lumber) and water (for power). After struggling to make the property financially viable as a gift shop or museum, the owners now make it available as an event venue. It would be sad to see this piece of history fade away. If in Ruidoso, stop by and give the old mill your support.
