Miller's Corner
Sidney, MT
Amsterdam Meat Shop
Manhattan, MT
A small windmill stood in front of the Dutch Mill drive-in which opened in the 1940s. It operated at this location which later came to be known as Miller's Corner. The Dutch Mill operated until at least 1979. In 2000, the property was sold and a gas station was built. The windmill was in bad shape by then. This replica was built, in a Danish rather than Dutch style. It was flattened by a car at some point and then rebuilt in 2012. The windmill is 30 feet tall. [map]

The Amsterdam Meat Shop opened in 1949. I don't know when this windmill was built. [map]

North Carolina:
Dutch Inn (Hendersonville) [gone?]

Minot, ND
Fremont, NE
This Windmill in Minot was built as a functioning windmill in 1928 by Carl Olson and installed in Powers Lake, ND. In the mid-1960s, it was donated and moved to Roosevelt Park in Minot. Later, it was taken down for restoration. A concrete and rock base was built in Scandinavian Heritage Park and the windmill was installed there in 1992. [map]

This Windmill in Fremont was built in 1929 and originally installed in Silver Creek, NE for the Dutch Windmill Cabin Court where it was installed on top of a gas station. The business later became the Dutch Mill Motel. In 1982, the windmill was moved to Fremont where it was used for the Wooden Windmill restaurant which closed in 2022. For more, see this website.

Windmill House [gone]
Barnegat, NJ
This Windmill House was built around 1910. The blades look like they turned at one time. In the past few years, the building has fallen into worse shape. Hardly any trace of the blades remains. In 2014, the building was still standing, bladeless, behind chain link fencing. By 2016, it was gone. For more, see this website.

Nieuw Amsterdam
Village Apartments
South Amboy, NJ
Windmill Restaurant
Long Branch, NJ
Roswell, NM
The Nieuw Amsterdam Village Apartments windmill is probably a recently built structure. This photo is from 2009. By 2013, the windmill had been painted red. By 2019, it was blue. [map]

This Windmill Restaurant opened in 1964 as a hot dog stand with this three-story windmill. There are now seven other locations but this is the only one with a windmill. For more, see this website. [map]

The Windmill in Roswell is a water vending machine. There are at least two of these unnamed machines in town, as well as two Watermill Express machines. For more, see this website.

Dutchland (Elizabeth) [gone]

Towne Crier
Clovis, NM
The Towne Crier building was designed by Henry Sandig in 1970 for the Zuider Zee Seafood Inn. It later housed Red Crow Drive Inn and the Pizza Mill & Sub Factory. The Towne Crier moved here in 1984. There was a record at the center of the windmill blades. The store now focuses on home and car stereos. Around 2022, the sign was replaced with a new sign and the wooden shingles were gone. The windmill blades were covered with signs. [map]

Windmill & Welcome Sign
Rotterdam, NY
Amsterdam, NY
The Windmill in Rotterdam was located in a Kmart shopping center when this photo was taken in 2005. It is about 17 feet tall. It was built in 1949 for a home builder's show in Albany, NY. After that, it was moved to a nursery in Guilderland, NY. In 1987, it was moved to the owner's private residence and used as a storage shed. In 1992, it was donated to the city of Rotterdam. It was moved near a restaurant and later moved to the shopping center. In 2009, the windmill was moved to the entrance to the Great Flats Nature Trail. For more, see this website. [map]

The windmill was chosen as the town's symbol in 1989. I believe this welcome sign was installed then.

This Windmill in Amsterdam is at a farm. It was probably functional originally. The photo above is from 2009. By 2016, the blades had been repaired. In 2021, one of the blades was missing again. [map]

Morehead Suzuki
Newburgh, NY
The windmill at Morehead Suzuki was fully functional originally. It is believed to be from the 1800s. [map]

Seneca Falls, NY
The Windmill in Seneca Falls was once the main office of a tourist cottage complex. It is now used as the Visitors Info Center, adjacent to the Seneca County Chamber of Commerce. These old photos date to the 1920s or so. There is a Shell gas sign visible in one of them. There were Mobilgas pumps there in the 1940s. For more, see this website. [map]

This Windmill has been around since at least the 1940s. It was originally known as the Dutch Mill Truck Stop. The building was used as a restaurant and there were Texaco pumps in front. The building is apparently now used as a residence. For more, see this website. [map]

Dutch Mill
Middle Point, OH
The Dutch Mill was built in the 1920s. It offered gas, food, and lodging. In later years, the windmill building was used as a bar. The building was being restored in 2009 when these photos were taken. However, that project was never completed. For more, see this website. [map]

Oberlin, OH
Dutch Haven
Ronks, PA
This Windmill in Oberlin was built in the mid-1980s. It was used to pump water from a pond to irrigate the farm where it is located. It is no longer in use. [map]

The Dutch Haven opened in the early 1920s as a luncheonette. The windmill structure was added in 1946. The business closed in 2023 and the property is for sale. It has reopened part-time for now. [map]
