Mid-America Windmill Museum

As each day goes by, I discover at least half a dozen singular charms along U.S. Route 6. The federal road travels through 14 U.S. states: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Utah, Nevada and California. Each state, of course, has its own sense of pride. Each has some little out of the way attraction that people "from near and far" come to see.

If you stay on Route 6 and don't detour very far, you'll see a lot of these pieces of Americana that you'll miss for sure while zooming by on the Interstates. You might get from one place to another quickly, but just imagine all that you'd miss; like The Mid-America Windmill Museum in Kendallville, Indiana.

For those kiddos who think that wind-power is some modern, green technology, educational gems like the Windmill Museum give us perspective on technology and industry.

I'm looking forward to checking out this museum on my trip this summer. And I'm equally looking forward to passing my impressions on to you.
