windmills $750,000 grant for Golden Gate windmill

The California Coastal Conservancy has awarded a $750,000 grant to rebuild the tower of the Murphy windmill in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.

The sails and machinery have already been shipped to the Netherlands for refurbishment, so the money will help restore the tower ready for their return, along with landscaping around both the park's windmills. The full cost of restoration of both mills is estimated at $6.5 million. The hope is that the Murphy windmill will be back pumping water in a years time. Mills: [us2] Tags: [usa]
