Windmill museum

Northern Indiana has a museum different from about any other museum in the region. Mid-America Windmill Museum is located on the east edge of Kendallville on Allen Chapel Road, just south of U.S. 6. Several different types of windmills are displayed and well maintained. Kendallville is home to Flint and Walling, a company still in existence where windmills were built many years ago. The museum is open through the end of November. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 to 5 Saturday and 1 to 4 Sunday. Visit midamericawindmillmuseum.org for more information.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
