Bruderheim Windmill - Heritage Park
Wilhelm Mallon, a carpenter and blacksmith arrived in Canada in 1910. He discovered that the sandy soil of his farm near Bruderheim, Alberta, grew a good crop of spring rye. The next step was building a mill to make the sort of rye bread. From 1920 to 1924, Mallon completed this mill. Mallon used hand tools to shape the gears, wheels and shafts from scrub birch, and shaped his millstones from granite found in the North Saskatchewan River.
