Holland, Michigan, windmill reopens after restoration
HOLLAND – A southwestern Michigan landmark has been revived – and now it's been rededicated. WZZM-TV reports the blades of Holland's 252-year-old DeZwaan windmill began turning again Saturday morning during a community celebration and open house.
The blades started turning to signify the start of the Run of the Mill race, which raises money for improvements. They include restoration of the Amsterdam street organ and carousel. Holland officials have approved plans to turn over operation of Windmill Island Gardens to a nonprofit group by 2016.
