Why A Windmill

Elk Horn, Iowa, the center of the largest concentration of Danish people outside the mainland, wanted something to dedicate to the memory of the good pioneers that settled here and built this fine community. The development of this beautiful mill and millhouse represents one of the finer tourist attractions in the state. The grain which is ground by the mill is for sale in the millhouse.

The millhouse offers information and souvenirs. Main Street has been remodeled and redecorated in a Danish theme, and Danish meats are featured at the grocery store. The Danish Inn, as well, offers a variety of Danish foods for your eating pleasure. Elk Horn is now the home of the Danish Immigrant Museum, an International Cultural Center.
