windmills Latest Robertson windmill completed at Kendallville, USA

I'm losing count, but I think that the replica Robertson post mill at Colonial Williamsburg has itself been replicated in 3 other locations. (Well when you have a good set of blueprints, it's worth reusing them!)

The latest version has recently been completed at the Mid-America Windmill Museum, Kendalville - a location more generally associated with American wind-engines. The museum is holding its 4th Annual Windmill Festival from 27-29th June, with lots of activities including crafters, music, and Civil War reenactments.

The mill was constructed with much help from the Timber Framers Guild, and there are more details on the museum site

Update: Another report puts the number of replicas at 3, but I reckon they are just counting replicas in the USA - I think there's another in Japan.
