JA Oat Bin
c. 1890


This water tank was first used around 1890 in the Griffin pasture on the JA Ranch in Palo Duro Canyon, Texas. It held a reserve water supply for 3,000 head of cattle. Moved to the ranch headquarters in the 1920s, the wooden tank became a storage bin for oats to feed the horse herd.

Monitor Vaneless L Model Windmill
c. 1918


The 10-foot wide windmill uses a spring governor and collapsible blade sections to control the speed the mill turns. A football-shaped counterweight made of reinforced concrete and steel replaced the company’s discus-shaped balance weight, which was phased out by 1918.
