One of the recent segments in our Indy Style “On the Road” special took us to the Mid-America Windmill Museum in Kendalville, Indiana.
It’s an outdoor museum like none other featuring a vital part of American history. Pam Younce of the Mid-America Windmill Museum joined us today with what we need to know about this landmark. Here’s more from her:
A major purpose for the Mid-America Windmill museum was to display all windmills manufactured at Kendallville’s Flint and Walling Company.
The Museum has expanded to displaying 52 windmills since its inception in 1992.
The powerful heartbeat of dreams, passion, and work of the windmill enthusiasts and volunteers is felt as guests walk the winding windmill path.
The Mid-America Windmill Museum’s goal and purpose is to provide a museum to:
- Collect, display, preserve
- Educate and build awareness
- Tell the story of wind power from its origination through the American windmill to the present day.
- Through video presentations, guided tours, exhibits, interactive displays, photographs, and a museum library, volunteers provide visitors the opportunity to learn about the history of windmills and wind power.
