Smith Center, KS, Old Dutch Windmill - 2/22/06 -
The Old Dutch Windmill was built by Charles Schwarz, a native of Germany, who homesteaded in Smith County in the 1870s. Its timbers were hewn from native logs and its burrs cut from native stones. It was completed about 1882 and for years it ground corn, wheat and buckwheat brought to it by farmers of the area. Wind power operated the mill until about 1913 when a kerosene engine was installed. It was moved to the park in Smith Center from its original site near Reamsville, northwest of Smith Center, in 1938.Read More
