Visit the Shattuck Windmill Museum and Park to experience the history of a once-commonplace feature on the plains of Oklahoma: the windmill. In the days of the early settlers, windmills were used to pump water from underground sources in places such as northwestern Oklahoma, where there was little ground water to be found. 

See 63 vintage restored windmills, some rare, from a span of 100 years at the Shattuck Windmill Museum and Park. Examples of windmills used from the 1850s to the 1950s are spread out over the four-acre park. All sizes of windmills are represented here, from the five-foot-tall Zephyr to the 18-foot-tall Samson. The windmills are made of either wood or steel, and no two in the park are alike. Each windmill in the park is authentic and has been used for sourcing water at some point in time.

A reconstructed dugout sits on the grounds of the park. This type of structure, made of stone and sod, was the only option for the early setters, as there was no readily available lumber. Later, when railroads brought goods such as lumber into the area, residents and newcomers were able to build homes similar to the one-and-a-half-story farmhouse on the park grounds, which was relocated from four miles south of Shattuck. Both structures are furnished to reflect life in 1900. You can also visit the recreated George Schultz General Mercantile to see a general store as it would have been in 1904 and browse windmill-related and vintage items.
