Ag Museum and Windmill Lane

Fifteen acres of buildings and outdoor displays, including Ernie Hohnbaum's tool collection, Jack Baker's miniature train collection, and Jere Bruning's tractor collection. Most impressive is Fred Kale's windmill collection, which stands outside, spinning in the Kansas breeze. Fred donated 47 windmills in 1993; more have been added since then, mostly stretched along a half-mile dirt road that the museum calls Windmill Lane.
