I have driven by this place many times and finally decided to check it out this weekend.

A for sale sign on the front window... this place had lots of holes in the ceiling and floors though so I don't imagine it will be opening for business anytime soon again.

Upstairs was a small living area.

And up a second flight of stairs is a cute tiny room with windows all around and access to the windmill.

If that's where I'm remembering, it was a giant beer bottle, just as you came into Elm Grove. It's outside a bar---or at least it was when I still lived there in 1994.
