Windmill At Rio Grande-Bob Evans Farm

The windmill has been a familiar landmark for passersby
since it was reconstructed on the farm in 1971. It was built
by James Beam, of Mount Vernon, Ohio, as a replica of
windmills found in Holland. It originally housed
French burr stones that were powered by the wind to grind
grain for livestock.
The 20-foot blades were imported from Holland


  1. Looks like the windmills in Solvang, CA in the Santa Ynez Valley.

  2. Very pretty. Sounds like it used to be very useful. Helen

  3. I sure wish the wind farms of today looked as romantic as this. I really admire this structure.
