A budding photographer's daily journey. Trying to find interesting subjects to test my skills in the art every day. Note that the pictures are full size and therefore will take a little while to load on slower connections if you click to "biggie" size them.

Day 152 – Fabyan Windmill

Very cool story of a windmill in Kane County, a working mill, originally moved from it’s location to the Fabyan Estate and still working to make bread and feed the owners two bears! It was restored during the move and then again as it fell into disrepair after the estate was donated to the Kane County Forest Preserve when the owners died.

    • Yeah it was a fascinating story to read and very cool to tour around. When they were setting the sails and letting it turn, it was a rare sight.
