Heritage Days and the Sweet Corn Dinner
July 19, 2015
Golden, Illinois

The only restored, U.S.-built windmill operating with its original millstones and wood gears is the site of Heritage Days and the Sweet Corn Dinner in mid-July.

Hosted by the Golden Historical Society, this festival celebrates the history of the Prairie Mill, a restored 1873 windmill in western Illinois. Tour the mill and museum, visit vendors, enjoy great food, enter the talent contest or watch the parade. Then stick around for the delicious sweet corn dinner.
