If the history of windmills sounds boring this destination probably isn't for you. In western Oklahoma windmills aren't just rustic artifacts. They still pump water on the open plains where the wind seems to always blow.

The town of Shattuck is home to an impressive display of this forgotten technology. The open-air museum features a variety 'mills and a sod house.

Located at the junction of OK-15 and US-283, it's well worth the detour to absorb some high-tech from a bygone era.
