Amana Woolen Mill, Amana, Iowa





"Amana Woolen Mill". We did look at their amazing work, would have loved to take home of these blankets, but they were not within our price range. On trips you have to give & take. A picture will have to do. Enjoy!!! Always such a fan of seeing how items are made, very cool to see that products are still made within the great country of the USA. way cool!!!  I'm guessing that the building above is the train station. The day we were there it was pretty empty and not a lot of the Amana businesses were open. Beth ( :

The woolen mill looks like a place I would love to go, Elizabeth. I know what you mean about buying things on trips. If I bought every thing that I wanted to buy, not only would we be totally broke, but there would not be room to fit it in our car! I enjoyed your post!!

Pretty cool that you saw how they were made.

Anything handmade is always special. Too bad they were too expensive for you to get one.

Those spools of wool look like toilet paper! Looks like a neat place to visit. Have a wonderful week.
Well always fun to admire even when you can't buy.
I agree. Most of my souvenirs are on an SD card. :-)

What a blast from the past--I worked at a textile mill years ago, putting those cones of thread onto machines!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
