This is the only one survived wooden mill in Rokiškis district that belonged to Juozas Ragelis. The current mill stands in the place of its predecessor. However, the previous building was slightly smaller than the current one, with a lower masonry foundation. The mill was famous throughout the area: there was so much work that even at night the miller begged grains. Everyone needed flour: coarse flour was intended for animal feed, smaller ones for bread and the smallest, whitest ones for cakes. The mill was powerful: the energy provided by its wings spun even two millstones.

When the mill burned down, anew one was built in its place also a wooden one, only on a high foundation of stone masonry. The mill was built by Lithuanian. The construction cost the host health: he get cold and get tuberculosis. When Ragelis died, the widow rented a mill.
