Outdoor Collection of Windmills

There is room to park on the street, and the property owner has mowed a nice pathway for visitors to follow through the collection. In a large Dutch windmill is a small display and a guestbook to sign.

Nice collection. There are more in the field across the street that are not put up.

Antique Windmills of Earth

A mile north of Jasper on Hwy 23 is an international collection of antique windmills. One is a 1/2 replica of a Netherlands mill, windmills from Argentina, Brazil, China plus many unique ones from the USA, including a double-bladed one. Catch the owner of the farm for an interesting tour.

[Rod Bahnson, 07/17/2008]

In our gas-starved future, historic windmill innovations will be admired more than any Model-T or Hummer. And you'll visit them in a double-bladed, wind-powered car.
