Additional description
One of the eight southwestern smocks (a frame with two pairs of millstones, surrounded by a polygonal skirt-shaped barn). It’s the only preserved mill in Samara region. It is located 70 kilometers from the rich highly populated city. Is that possible that absolutely nobody needs it and it will collapse like the mill in Chirsha near Kazan?

Pictures and reports about the mill are numerous, and you can read them, for example, here and here. A little more detailed description is here.

The date of the last visit of the mill can be seen in the geocaching registration book.
