Midwest Windmill Museum Kendallville Indiana

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to promote my local Museum. The barn for this midwest windmill museum was a local barn that was tore down and moved to where it is now. I remember when this was a field. My late dad donated some old pump rods to this museum. It has been around for quit a few years now. The town of Kendallville is home to the Flint and Walling company which has been in business for more then 150 years. My cousins late grandma shared some awesome stories with me during WW2 she was a munitions inspector. They stopped production of well pumps to help with the war effort. The company is a big part of the community and the museum. There are windmills from all over the country here. Even a big mill windmill. You can also have get togethers and weddings. They also have a wonderful Christmas display which was mostly donated by an older couple who lived in Wolcottville another local small town.http://www.midamericawindmillmuseum.org/   Here is the link to Flint and walling. https://www.flintandwalling.com/en-na/  I had some adopted family move to Kendallville just because of either Flint and walling or the old McCray Refrigeration. Here is a short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hDN__phjgU

Here’s a windmill on the grounds of the Long Island Antique Power Association. I believe it’s a Fairbanks-Morse. I thought it would be a nice spot to show a few of my tractors a couple of years ago.
