Trevelin is a city in Patagonia Argentina in the province of Chubut. It is a city well known because in 1902 the Welsh settlers who lived there decided to take Argentinian nationality after a time of conflict in which Chile claimed the land. The plebiscite was signed at School No. 18 Rio Corintos. Its Welsh name means “Mill Village. The first mill was opened by John Daniel Evans in 1918 with the name of Mill of Andes Company, it was used to grind wheat and its three owners with this creation, decided to donate part of the valley to the creation of a village near the river Percey because there were already colonies for people who worked in the mill every day, thus initiating Trevelin. On the death of Evans, production was declining and the factory closed in 1953, after that it was restaured and opened as a museum. The city of Trevelin met other small towns and some of them are Mapuche communities (indigenous). With Welsh settlers, the founders of the city, Trevelin has a rich Celtic culture of the country.
