    La Cueva Mill (Mark Jochim)

    The 1870's La Cueva Mill supplied flour to Fort Union, which guarded the Santa Fe Trail. The 470-acre, 5-building La Cueva Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

    Today, La Cueva is owned by the William Salman family, who run a raspberry farm on the property. Between August and October, visitors may buy fresh berries at the farm store or cool off with a raspberry sundae.
