Fulton’s Dutch Windmill was manufactured and pre-assembled in the Netherlands. Following the delivery to Fulton, the Windmill was assembled and installed by Dutch craftsmen. Standing nearly 100 ft. tall, the massive timbers are assembled by wooden pegs. Dedication of the new Dutch Windmill took place during the * Dutch Days Festival 2000. Dutch Days is an annual event occurring the first Friday and Saturday in May every year.
This authentic Dutch windmill was constructed on the flood control dike overlooking the Mississippi River and immediately next to the Great River Trail extension along Fulton’s riverfront in the heart of Fulton. The windmill was engineered and pre-fabricated in the Netherlands and shipped to the United States in containers by ship, rail, and truck transportation. Dutch millwrights and masons traveled to the United States on three separate occasions and rebuilt the windmill in Fulton.
