Crews were working Wednesday to move the windmill at Brinkhoff Park.

A crane was used to remove the structure from the park load it onto a trailer for transport. The Pella Community Services Board along with the Pella Garden Club are working to restore the miniature mill that welcomes visitors to Pella on Washington Street.

Volunteers will restore the wooden upper portion of the windmill over the winter. A new limestone base will be installed next spring and the finished product should be up for next year’s Tulip Time.
