Historical Artifact to Compliment the Osmund House Facility

This "The Aermotor Company" windmill was first erected in Gore, North Dakota, in April 1916, and served as a sole source for water production until approximately 1995, at which time Fred Exner purchased it for the El Monte Historical Society. This windmill functions today as it did in the early days of the 20th Century
