windmills An appreciation of David Harrison - father of Flowerdew Hundred windmill

David Harrison owned a farm in the state of Virgina, USA, whose history stretched back to Colonial times, and beyond to Native American settlements. For many years he proudly showed where the colonial windmill once stood, and in 1978 through his vision, a replica mill was built in the same location. He died in June 2003.

The University of Virginia, which he graduated from, has published an appreciation of his life.
