Long Description:
This is all that is left of a road side restaurant built in the 1930's.
There is a "story board" next to the windmill that has pictures of what it used to look like.
One of the pictures (included with the waymark) shows a automobile that looks as though it is late 1920's or early 1930's.
There used to be a room in back of the windmill and cabins behind it.
This is an early version of a stop and eat, and maybe stay the night.
There is a small semi-circle drive that you can park on while looking at the windmill.
