Dalley Windmill Museum

Windmills

The Dalley windmill collection built by Bill and Alta Dalley of Portales was taken over by the City of Portales in 2011 and includes over 80 examples of windmills dating from the mid-19th century to the late 20th century. Many of the windmills were used around the Portales area. Before the city took over the collection, it was housed in the Dalley’s yard. Here is a visitor’s description of the museum before the city took it over.
