Little Chute Windmill

The Little Chute Windmill, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which operates and maintains an authentic Dutch windmill in the center of downtown Little Chute, Wisconsin. The Little Chute Windmill & Van Asten Visitor Center is a historical and educational tool for all ages and a monument to the Midwest’s Dutch heritage arising from the Dutch migrations to the United States.

The windmill itself is an authentic, fully functioning 1850s design from the province of North Brabant in the Netherlands and stands over 100 feet tall. It was designed and built in the Netherlands, disassembled, shipped to Little Chute and reassembled. The Van Asten Visitor Center features a museum on the history of Dutch settlement in the region, which the Little Chute Historical Society helped develop and maintains. The Historical Society also maintains a historical archive and genealogy workspace in the facility.
