New resting place for OK Cafe windmill

The iconic, wooden, 48-foot high windmill that graced the property of the former OK Cafe in Hastings has found a new place to call home.

At their regular meeting Monday, the Adams County Planning and Zoning Commission approved the application of Jim Kindig to erect the tower at his business in Kenesaw. Because the windmill exceeds the 36-foot height limit for towers in commercial districts in Adams County, Kindig had to file an application and prove that his tower would not endanger nearby properties.

Kindig purchased the windmill for $2,100 in August when OK Cafe owners Pat and Mary Jo Randolph auctioned off the restaurant's decor and memorobilia.
