|The City of Fulton, IL. is celebrating its Dutch heritage
by the construction of an authentic Dutch windmill. The Dutch companies
Molema Millwrights, Bulder Projectbureau and Havenga Restoration Contractors
were asked to construct the Fulton windmill.
The first part of the work on the Beltmolen-type windmill was finished in May of 2000. The windmill was operational in the sense that the head could be turned to position the sails into the direction of the wind and the sails were turning on the wind.
In May of 2001 phase 2 was completed. The Molemas have installed the
grinding stones and the internal gears for the grinding stones.
