Csárda: tower mill :

Converted to a restaurant, but upper floors retain the major machinery in place, including the millstones. Current short dummy sails are pretty hideous, and seem to be comparatively recent, since some photos of the restaurant show longer sails.

tower mill :

moved from the farmlands of Dónát near Szentes

Signboard says:
Windmill from Szentes Donat. It was originally built in the second half of the 19th century.
Signboard says:
Windmill. Original owner: Csucs.
Original location: Szentes-Dónát.
The original windmill was built at Szentes-Dónátpustza between 160-70. It was equipped with two millstones, a bedder and a runner. It was an upper-driven Hungarian type windmill.
The mill was repaired in the 1950s. It was decided in the second half of the 1980 that the original building should be pulled down and should be rebuilt in the National Memorial Park. The demolishing was organized by the Town Council of Szentes, the reconstruction was performed by the Szeged contractors of the National Office for the Protection of Architectural Memorials. Unfortunately, due to transportation and negligent storage, most of the original wooden structures were destroyed, so most of the pieces of equipment in the present building are replicas. The reconstructed building was inaugurated in 1988.
The diameter of the building, which was originally built on a mound, is 8.40m at the bottom. The wall of the building is 1.2m thick here. The wall is built of burnt bricks at the inside and outside with unburnt bricks in between.

tower mill : rebuilt in open air museum

Signboard says:
Windmill from Dusnok.
The mill was built in 1888 according to the inscription of the wheel. Its walls were made of adobe bricks, the four-storied edifice itself is covered with bricks. The flour is collected into chests on the ground floor, while two pairs of millstones and a stone-lifting mechanism can be found on the next floor. The transmission is on the second floor, while the third floor is covered by the rotatable roof. The sail of the mill, braced by iron rods consists of four fliers. On the railed fliers linen is stretched. The furnishing on the ground floor in the miller's quarter, consisting of a room and a kitchen - reflects the poor living conditions of the last owner's family.

Malom: sails on building:

The major modern shopping centre in town is called Malom (meaning mill, I believe after the large industrial flour mill that previously occupied the site), and the large atrium has a huge millstone as its focus. The cash desk of the kids' play attraction on the top floor is painted and made to look like a windmill, with a small set of sails.
