I am a truck driver that travels through Industry every night on my way to Rock Island. I am curious as to the history behind the windmill on the north end of town. Its always dark out and I can't see much. Any information about this windmill would be appreciated.

My Grandfather who is 93 has always lived in the area, and he has told me about the windmill by the curve just before Industry. He says it used to be a restaurant. There used to be a room in back of the windmill and cabins behind it. I have passed the windmill many times and pass it every time I come back to visit my family. It is a great landmark and always makes us glad to be back home.
