windmills Little Chute, Wisconsin planning windmill construction

The Dutch settlement area of Little Chute, Wisconsin, has firmed up plans to construct an authentic Dutch windmill in the village. Residents formed Little Chute Windmill Inc. in mid 2002, and are expecting to award the $1.2 million contract to Verbij Hoogmade B.V. the Dutch millwrights. Construction could start in a couple of years, and take 18 months to complete, on a site on West Main Street near the Public Library and Civic Center. Around $35,000 of the costs have so far been raised, with a major fund raiser planned this month.

Update:[9/2/04] After meeting with Verbij Hoogmade, the committee have chosen the windmill design.
