This is a 6' Samson open gear steel mill.
Location: J.B. Buchanan Farm, 15 miles South of Spearman on Highway 207. Then 1 mile West on County Road.
This mill was made by the Stover Company of Freeport, Illinois in 1900. Ila Mae's father put it up on the Pierce farm for her grandmother in 1916. It was moved to the J.B. Buchanan farm and rebuilt. It was taken down and rebuilt by the SWPA and put back up on J.B.'s farm on July 7th, 2001. J.B. said the Samson was his pick of the windmills when he was a boy.
