Virtual Tour of the Prairie Mills Windmill
The Virtual Tours around Quincy continue with an inside look at the fabulous Prairie Mills Windmill!
Throughout the stay at home orders during the COVID-19 crisis Arts Quincy has been hard at work to provide everyone in the Quincy area with some really special, and unique programming. One of the biggest and most successful things Arts Quincy has come up with are these "Virtual Tours" they have done everything from Dick Brothers Brewery, to Villa Katherine, and everything in between of relevance in Quincy, well now its the Prairie Mills Windmill's turn! The Virtual Tour of the Prairie Mills Windmill takes place Tuesday, June 23rd starting at 10 am on the Arts Quincy Facebook page, which can be found by clicking here, they say on their event page...
"The Dutch smock windmill and historic landmark is the only restored U.S.-built windmill still operating with its original millstones and wood gear mechanism. Built in 1873 by Henry Emminga, it's one of only two Dutch windmills in downstate Illinois. ."

I have watched all of these Virtual Tours that Arts Quincy has put together over the past couple months during this quarantine time, and I got to say they are really fun to watch if you are into local history like myself. I promise if you tune into the broadcast on Tuesday, or you watch some of the previous Virtual Tours that they have done in the past, you will learn something about these historic Quincy places you didn't know before!
