24 Beautiful Windmills In Nebraska That Will Make You Want To Head For The Country

Windmills are as much a part of Nebraska’s landscape as fields of grain and softly rolling hills of prairie grass. Way back when, windmills were used to supply fresh water from a well. Today, modern plumbing has shifted our reliance away from traditional windmills, so many have been lost forever. Some, however, have been preserved and allowed to stand sentinel, watching over the land they have served for so long. These lovely windmills are a throwback to an earlier era in Nebraska.

These stunning prairie sentinels are almost like works of art in their own right. They define Nebraska’s landscape and they look a lot like home. Do you have any spectacular windmill shots? Share them with us on our Facebook page.
