Citizens of Jasper County came to the Jasper County Historical Museum to see the new "WINDerful Tales" exhibit Sunday and learn how former and current residents harnessed the wind. The museum obtained grants from Silos & Smokestacks and the Jasper County Community Foundation to begin working on the new display. One of the projects that the grant helped with was being able to erect the metal windmill donated by Herb Scott up for display. This windmill is representation of how wind was harnessed in Jasper County in the past.
