The two RV Gypsies went to Shattuck Windmill Museum in Shattuck (Ellis County), Oklahoma - July 11, 2012
sign: Welcome to Shattuck

Shattuck Windmill Museum is located on State Highway 15 and U.S. 183 - 40 minutes West of Woodward. This interesting collection of rare and restored windmills from the 1850s to the 1950s symbolizes the method by which farmers were able to settle farm land that was without adequate ground water. The collection included over 30 wonderful examples of pioneer ingenuity and spirit. All sizes of windmills were represented here, from the five-foot-tall Zephyr to the 18-foot-tall Samson. The windmills were made of either wood or steel, and no two in the park are alike. Each windmill in the park is authentic and has been used for sourcing water at some point in time. The windmill was once a commonplace feature on the plains of Oklahoma.

A reconstructed dugout sits on the grounds of the park. This type of structure, made of stone and sod, was the only option for the early setters, as there was no readily available lumber. Later, when railroads brought goods such as lumber into the area, residents and newcomers were able to build homes similar to the one-and-a-half-story farmhouse on the park grounds, which was relocated from four miles south of Shattuck.
