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.
