Kalnvēveri farm was first documented at the end of the 19th century, and the windmill is said to be built around 1880. The mill was operated until around 1912, but later on it slowly deteriorated and only an empty casing was left at the end of the 20th century. In 2008, the Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia reconstructed the mills to preserve the historically valuable building and prevent it from getting lost within its historic settings.
