Shattuck, Ok April, 23 (The Oklahoma Post) –

I saw a post where someone had mentioned the Windmill Museum in Shattuck, OK, and thought about how this place just doesn’t get the credit it deserves.

It is quite a bit more than windmills, there is a Pioneer Dugout replica, Pioneer Homestead, old-school homemade drilling rigs, and some other sorts of power generation like the giant water wheel. Everything is marked very well with easy-to-read signage and detailed info on when/where and how it was used on almost every windmill or other exhibit item. And as an added bonus it is spread out pretty well and makes for a nice walk this time of year most of the time. I thought I would share a few photos from our recent trip there with captions on each photo. I do encourage you to check it out if you’re going to be in the area.

The Shattuck Windmill Museum was established in 1994, and now has over 34 windmills standing with no two alike.

Add on Alabaster Caverns or a trip to the Gage Artesian Beach once it opens and it would make a good day trip from the OKC area.
