The museum houses exhibits of central Kansas history and genealogy research, as well as a gift shop. Outside the mill is a beautiful picnic area and campground. The Smoky Valley Roller Mills 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.
Across the street, Heritage Square is home to seven historic buildings, Santa Fe Locomotive #735, a wooden windmill and Heritage Center containing business exhibits, a livery stable and farm machinery. The Swedish Pavilion located at the north end of the square was brought over from Sweden for the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis.
