Motor Mill, Elkader, Iowa






Motor Mill, Elkader, IA. 52043

Let's see that mill ...I wonder why folks don't get the history behind these amazing pieces of architecture. I know we have moved forward in technology ...but come on folks these places need to be preserved. Take care of and remembered. I wonder why so many folks of a younger age don't think about where we have come from and know it is meant to be honored and preserved. I wish I could come up with a better word than "preserved" but that is what keeps popping into my mind at the moment of typing up this post. Think of men (I don't believe the ladies did this work, but if they did ... THANK YOU!) did most of the work and it is just amazing. Such history. Thanks, for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

Mills were high tech in their time. I was told that there was one within three miles of most people, so they could walk there.
