Progressive Prairie Gem!

When you drive across the prairie, one can still find old hip roof barns and you can still find old 'water pumping' windmills!  However, it is NOT very often you find the combination of the two!  In fact, I have never found that combination, with the exception of this little prairie gem!  This is my absolute favourite little barn!!!  Progressive for their time ... indoor plumbing in their barn!  I am guessing this is likely an early 1900's vintage barn with it's AERMOTOR Windmill.  The Chicago Aermotor Works dominated the world windmill market.  So with that being said ... this really is a progressive "prairie gem!"
