Our thank you goes out to Clint and Jami Tunnell for allowing us to bring you the photo below.
Taken about the turn of the century* in downtown Blanket, the windmill pictured here once stood in the middle of the intersection just outside the steakhouse’s front door and was used as a water supply for the town.
Today, the little town of Blanket is the only city in Brown County that does not depend on Lake Brownwood for its water supply, and yes, you guessed it. Blanket continues to use its wells to supply water for residents!
