Three Rivers Members traveled north on May 11 to the Mid-America Windmill Museum. Sara, our tour guide, provided us with a rich history of windmills, old & new. One of the original companies, Flint & Walling Manufacturing, started making windmills and is still in business today. However, now they are known as F&W and they no longer make windmills. They make pumps & filtration systems. Members were allowed to explore the property & exhibits. The museum is a not-for-profit and has 21 board members that keep it going. Windmills came from Europe in the 1600s & were popular for transferring the power of wind into grain mills & water pumps. The water pumps were used to load the steam engine trains across the country. Mid-America Windmill Museum celebrates it's 25th Anniversary this year. What a perfect time for Three Rivers Members to attend
