ONLY MINUTES LEFT and the second demolition company makes a pile of rubble from this in less then 1/2 hour.  Oakdale Windmill was torn down in in Late 2004 and early 2005. It was part of  the F. G. Bourne dairy farm. Later it was turned into Windmill Gate, a 110-unit complex for residents 55 and older. After hearing that it would cost $2000.00 per household to fix the windmill, most residents chose to have it leveled for $1000.00 per household.

I have many shots of this windmill and its final months.
