•Just a little place in Illinois • 
Part 1 

These are the things that amaze me. 

First - my son was running SO fast, I had to slow down this video…

Second - how did I NOT know about this place in Illinois?!

It’s 2 hours from home. 
And I had no clue about the beautiful working, Dutch windmill overlooking the Mississippi River. 

OR that they’ve had their own small town Dutch festival for 50 years! 

This area was settled by Dutch immigrants in 1823. 
It’s quite remarkable how many generations have prioritized preserving their heritage. 

The windmill, named De Immigrant,
was officially dedicated in the year 2000. 

But before that, it was crafted in Holland from refurbished parts of old, unused windmills. Then disassembled & reassembled here by the townspeople. 

A few locals even use the mill to make local products for sale in their cultural center! 

Tours inside the windmill are FREE. 

I especially love that it’s black & overlooking the water. Both are unique attributes I haven’t seen in Midwest windmills yet.
