Kregel Windmill Factory Museum

This renovation was unique in that our team constructed a shell around the existing and historical Kregel Windmill Factory. When Arthur (Art) Kregel suddenly died in the late 1980’s the factory was closed and the building has since “been frozen in time,” and this restoration allowed the reopening of this factory to the public.

Sampson Construction began renovating the existing prairie-style, wood structure that is original from the early 1900’s and was careful that their work did not disrupt the historical remnants. This renovation is unique in that our team built a shell around the original 1902 factory and constructed around machinery and records that date back to the Civil War. The shell included new roofing, walls, and foundation. A deteriorated porch located in the back of the existing structure was raised and replaced with a restroom and mechanical room. This project also included work to the house located next to the museum. This house serves as the office and visitor center for the museum and received new flooring, paint, upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems, added new accessible ramp, restrooms, repair basement walls, new roof on porch, and new gutters and downspouts.
