The Mid America Windmill Museum in Kendallville Indiana
Jim Watt: Wind power is one of man’s least expensive forms of energy. A tribute to that very first windmill in Kendallville, the mid America Windmill Museum
Russ Baker: We think it’s very special because it’s the first public windmill museum in the United States and it’s the only one now east to the Mississippi River. I think they’re open about six windmills that would restore and now reach down there eight years later within 52 windmills and another 30 years old then in the warehouse downtown and we’ve got to repair yet and put up windmills out here or go all the away from the area like the Daniel Holiday which was all wind and if you think that the front thing mechanism in the Barrington Silver that is melted and all steel. Today’s windmill runs in a bath of oil and you change all you want to here and you got a machine that allows you 20 to 30 years and take good care of it.
It’s quite a way with windmills operating everyday in the United States to continue pumping water. It’s not unusual for a ranch out on the highlands to have 18000 acres land that they have 20 acres 25 windmill. My answer is also manufactured windmills in Springfield, Ohio.
Larry Leffel: I think that history especially in this area in windmills laid a tremendous part in the development of agriculture and basically in the United States and I think that you need to preserve this heritage for future generations as we progress with different source of power and wind certain by words one of the most important powers that we have and I think we still have it.
Jim Watt: Year two the Annual Tri-state Memorial late Bluegrass Festival.
Dave Vogie: I will somewhere around 500 campers here. We have about 125 a week ago on Sunday and they come for the music in the campfire last night there was probably 12 or 13 GM’s around the ground. I thought I may give out at around 1:30 last night and there were four within walking just easy walking distances like barrel.
Well, I think its participation is what it is that anyone can pick up the guitar and whatever and after some practice we learn to play and they a play a common song, the common format not common songs that service so that once you’ve master the instrument and some of the basic songs you can stand back at what we call the Secateur and listen to some of the music and kind of way long with it and then eventually become the first year where you’re going to be the lead singer and the lead guitar here.
I think it’s a level of the past. It’s a music of the past that originated down in the hills, down south with a lot of people and I’m from Michigan so a lot of people came in Michigan for work back green and the pressure and everything and where generations of Southern families that practice with them from the mountains and that’s what we call DPS debate and it’s a good family fund which is poignant.
Jim Watt: In addition to workshops jams sessions in the entire camping festival experience over 40 performances on stage by some of the best Bluegrass groups in the country.
