History of the Mill

 

The only known history is that this mill was once located in Palatine.  A photo from the same source (Images of America) shows a blurred, out-of-frame picture of the windmill, which is really the Heidemann Windmill.  Located on the south side of Sherman between Benton and Fremont, operational from 1879 to 1894.
