The Windmill is Back!

We had an exciting day at the Fort Museum on Wednesday, August 21st as we celebrated the official grand opening of our newly restored Monitor Model L Vaneless Windmill with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The windmill was restored thanks to the generous donations of the Mid-American Energy Company and the Ann Smeltzer Charitable Trust. The work was done by Great Plains Windmill Service of Kinross, Iowa.
