What's Old is New Again

From 1866 to 1942, Stover Manufacturing was a bustling business headquartered in Freeport, Illinois. Dedicated to the manufacture of “modern” windmills, it sold its nature-powered products all over the world through the Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalog.

The company enjoyed a sterling reputation. Families were proud to put up an award-winning Stover windmill. In fact, William Ford, the father of Henry Ford, took a special interest in the product at Philadelphia’s Centennial Exposition in 1876. The windmill had won a number of honors, including ribbons at the Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania state fairs. William decided to purchase one for the Ford family farm. When Henry restored his boyhood home in 1919, he took care to locate a Stover windmill for the site.
