The Golden Historical Society recently reprinted the book, "When the Wind Blows" by local author Anna Wienke.  Anna is the great-granddaughter of the builder of the mill, Mr. H. R. Emminga.

 

The book details the Emminga family and the history of the three windmills and one steam mill that operated in the Golden area.  "When the Wind Blows" is a must for all mill enthusiasts or anyone interested in local history.
