Been doing some research about wooden windmills in Illinois. Batavia,Illinois is called "The Windmill City". In their history it reports the different wind mills companies during the 1860's that the The United States Wind Engine and Pump Co founded in 1863 by John VanNortwick, Smith Mallory and Daniel Halladay to make wooden wind mills invented by Mr. Halladay.It was the largest factory of its kind in the world.
The building of wind mills ended in early 1940's. Hope this is some new information for you.
