Hollands Grist Mill
|Photos by Ben Prepelka
When it comes to windmills, the Dutch sounding name of Hollands may be somewhat misleading. Hollands Grist Mill was completed in the 1880s, and featured an Englishman's design. Built by Henry Hollands, the mill operated until 1907, grinding grain and sawing lumber for the town's folk of Milbank. Classical mill designs are usually water powered, but this wind powered mill was built to take advantage of South Dakota's prairie winds.
