Shattuck Windmill Museum
Over 50 historic windmills whir away at this outdoor museum.
Windmills were once prolific in northwestern Oklahoma where they were essential to pulling water out of the ground, but now the most you are likely to see together is at the Shattuck Windmill Museum.
More than 50 windmills, as well as a wind generator, cluster on the outdoor museum’s four acres, from the towering 18-foot Samson to the petite five-foot-tall Star Zephyr. They date from the 1850s to 1950s and range from those built entirely from wood to those of steel. Yet while the eccentric and charming array may lack aesthetic cohesion, they are together in working order and spinning away with the wind blowing across the plains.
