Series: Old White Men’s Retirement Home Revisited

The grounds surrounding the Old White Men’s Retirement Home has some real treasures, and this old decaying windmill is no different. Nature has long since decided its fate engulfing it with vines, thick brushes, and trees. Its usefulness may be just nostalgic today, but I am sure it served a purpose like pumping water or some sort.

As a boy this windmill was non operational. The blades were still attached however, and the wind would give some indication that some life was still there. Neglect has been this windmill’s constant companion for some years and who knows what the future holds for this old relic of the past.
