category : Museums
Brown County Historical Society Ag Museum and Windmill Lane The Ag Museum constructed in 1993, features a unique display of windmills. It resembles a 1900 farmstead with a paved windmill trail for sightseers and joggers to use and enjoy. There is a log cabin replica that is the office, the Old Barn, Ernie's cabinet shop, Blacksmith shop, Horsedrawn implement building, an antique tractor and car display, a real caboose, and much more.

Windmill Lane is dedicated as the farmers friend. They pumped the water and generated power. These agricultural statues are silhouetted on the horizon all over America's Heartland. Windmill Lane represents over 40 of these magnificent towers. Most have been donated by families in the name of remembered farmers and ranchers that worked the Heartland.
