Windpomp Museum (Loeriesfontein)

The Windpump Museum situated in the grounds of the Fred Turner museum is probably Loeriesfontein’s most well-known tourism attraction and features a collection of 27 working windpumps originating from afar afield as the United States and Canada. Wandering around the display of windpumps one is struck by their intricate construction and the size of the individual blades designed to catch even the lightest of breezes.

The idea behind the Windpump Museum came from the late Dr Walton, a resident of Cape Town, who was born in the United Kingdom. His interest in the conservation of the windpumps of South Africa led to the establishment of this most unusual exhibit in the grounds of the Fred Turner Museum in Loeriesfontein. Other known windmill museums are in Alberta, Canada and Texas and Oklahoma in the United States.
