Antique Windmill

Restoration of A Baker Monitor L Vaneless Windmill circa 1890


In 2007 I purchased an antique windmill from an estate sale near Larned, Kansas. The Baker Monitor L Vaneless Windmill's ironworks were complete and all original. The wood sails and wooden tower, however, had been replaced long ago with very poorly made parts.

After two years in the making, I and some good neighbors erected the fully restored windmill. It now spins majestically on our sheep farm in The Great Missouri Ozarks.
