Fort Ross shows off new Russian-built windmill

A new Russian-build windmill is now operating at the Fort Ross state park on the Sonoma Coast.

According to The Press Democrat article "the Fort Ross replica windmill is the only working Russian windmill in the world, fitted with two 200-year-old mill stones and the ability to actually use wind-power to grind the grain. The few windmills that have survived in Russia aren't operational".
