Kawartha PV 490-3.jpg

When Kawartha Settlers' Village was originally created, there was a strong desire for an operational windmill on the property. Lorne McKenzie came forward and offered one he had on his Red Rock property. Al Ingram approached Bruce Smith with the task of reassembling the old windmill, which was in pretty rough shape. After an entire summer of bending old metal and refurbishing the old mill, Bruce Smith was able to bring a local artifact back to life where it now stands at Kawartha Settlers’ Village.
