windmills Round up of the history of DeZwann windmill, Michigan

The 243 year old DeZwann windmill was shipped from the Netherlands to arrive 40 years ago in Holland, Michigan, where it was reassembled over a period of 6 months as the main feature of Windmill Island.

The mill was purchased for $2800, and travelled by ship from the Netherlands to Muskegon, where on Oct 6 1964 it was transferred to a fleet of trucks. $450,000 was then spent reassembling it.
