Old Dutch Mill Tourist Camp
Industry, IL
The Old Dutch Mill Tourist Camp was established in 1927. This windmill served as a gas and service station office. There was also a restaurant, cabins, and, evidently, a teepee. It was donated to the city of Industry around 2005. In 2013, the City received a $10,000 donation to restore the windmill. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Pioneer Motel
Lansing, IL
Dutch Haven
Ronks, PA
The Pioneer Motel features a big windmill over the office. Until the late 1960s, it was known as the Dutch Mill Motel. These photos are from 2007. By 2013, the windmill had been painted green. [map]

The Dutch Haven opened in the early 1920s as a luncheonette. The windmill structure was added in 1946. The blades still turn. For more, see this website. [map]

Morehead Suzuki
Newburgh, NY
Old Dutch Mill
Smith Center, KS
Windmill
Waterford, WI
The windmill at Morehead Suzuki was fully-functioning originally. It is believed to be from the 1800s. [map]

The Old Dutch Mill was built in Reamsville, KS by Charles Schwarz around 1879. It was used to grind corn, wheat and other grain. The blades had sailcloth originally. It was moved here to Wagner Park in Smith Center in 1938. In 1955, the windmill was damaged by a fire and rebuilt. [map]

This Windmill in Waterford is located on a farm. [map]

Dutch Mill [gone]
Greenville, IL
Windmill
James Island, SC
Moulin des Artes
Saint-Fabien, QC
The Dutch Mill originally operated as a cafe. It now houses a bar. This photo is from 2005. The windmill was still there in 2008. By 2015, the bar was still there but the windmill was gone.

The Windmill in James Island is located at the Plymouth Avenue boat landing. It was donated to the Riverland Terrace Garden Club and moved here around 1998. Does anyone know the history of this structure? [map]

The Moulin des Artes is an art gallery and studio. I assume this was a functional windmill originally. This photo is from 2009. By 2014, the blades were gone. [map]

Dutch Mill Motel
Wisconsin Dells, WI
Plumley's [gone]
Texarkana, AR
The Dutch Mill Motel is now used for student housing. [map]

This building in Texarkana housed Plumley's grocery and gift shop. I don't know if that was the original occupant. The building looked like it had been vacant for many years when these photos were taken in 2008. The windmill was still there in 2015 but gone by 2016.

Windmill Chapel
Pacific Palisades, CA
This Windmill Chapel is located at the Lake Shrine Temple. It is a reproduction of a 16th-century Dutch windmill. The windmill was built in the 1940s and was originally used as a residence and movie set. It became a chapel after the property was acquired by the Self-Realization Fellow­ship. For more, see this website. [map]
