If you haven’t noticed already, our windmill has been repaired and re-installed at the Barn.  Check it out!

The windmill is an 8-foot Flint & Walling Model 37.  The design for this windmill was patented in 1937 and manufactured until the early 1950’s by the Flint & Walling Mfg. Company of Kendallville, IN.  It was primarily used for pumping water.

Mark Nice of Antique Windmills in South Lyon did a great job in restoring the windmill.   Mark repaired the vanes and arms of the wheel, restored the tail to its original design, cleaned the gearbox, added a brake and painted it to look like the original (less the F & W stenciling that was originally on the tail). 

Thanks to Jay Coughlin and the Windmill Committee for finally getting this project off the ground and into the air!

Be a good neighbor:  It has come to our attention that some homeowners or their contractors are plowing or shoveling snow from driveways into the street.  Our snow removal company takes this problem into account when they calculate their costs for a subdivision.  Please keep your snow on your property. 

If you have a storm drain adjacent to your property, please keep it free of leaves and debris.  It just takes a few minutes and can minimize flooded roads, ice accumulations, and worsening potholes. We all will thank you.  If you would like to request pothole repair, please call Wayne County Road Commission, Norton Yard:  313-937-0232.

 

- Below is a picture of the barn after the recent maintenance work...looks good!
