Inscription.  Barbed wire didn't tame the west, nor did cowboys. The conqueror of the vast midsection of this country was the stately, creaking, dependable windmill. It brought water to livestock and people, and water was what it took to make the land bloom.
Windmill donated by Mr. & Mrs. Eugene Miller May 1982
