Edgerton Windmill Needs Repair

The windmill at the city park is in need of some upkeep and repair. The Edgerton Dutch Festival Committee is doing some of the work themselves to keep the birds out. But this icon of Edgerton for the past 35 years will need more repairs in the future.

The windmill was built in 1982 according to plans made by the Chamber of Commerce. It was built on city property with the approval of the City of Edgerton. Here are some excerpts of the articles that ran in the Edgerton Enterprise in July 1982.
