These structures dot the landscape on the Great Plains, many of which have fallen into disrepair over the decades. With little paint remaining on them and wood that has weathered many seasons, they are a fantastic photo subject.
This particular windmill was at the Old Town Museum in Burlington, Colorado?. This town on the Great Plains holds fast onto its agricultural-centric roots and embraces the feeling of community that rural locations are very special for having.
If you ever get a chance to stop at this museum, I would highly recommend it. It is extraordinarily well done and provides a look back into life on the plains from the 1800s through today.
