The early settlers were a hardy bunch. The windmill-seen throughout rural America, symbolizes: life, serenity, resilience, self-sufficiency and perseverance.

History of Windmills in America:

The early settlers on the American plains had great needs for water-personal needs, crops, livestock. The water flowed more than 300′ below.
the typical style windmills of the day (think Holland) were impractical for these hardy settlers.

In 1854, Daniel Halladay developed the American-type windmill. It was smaller, less expensive, and easily made and shipped.
