The Davidson Windmill was built in 1904 by Finnish immigrant Jacob (Tapola) Davidson to grind flour and animal feed for farmers in the area. The windmill was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The family donated the windmill to Old-Brule Heritage Society in 2001.
The mill is now in danger of collapse. The eight large, vertical timbers that make up the main framing show rot that was hidden from view by the outer layer of steel sheeting. On inspecting the sheeting for repair, it was discovered that one beam was rotted from the sheeting side almost completely through.
Old Brule Heritage Society (OBHS) has contracted with local contractors to repair or replace all framing as needed and replace the tin covering. To help the group raise funds, a GoFundMe has been created to collect money for the project.
