Located on the west side of the Golden Gate Park, there are two windmills that once served a functional purpose for the town, but now stand as regal depictions of their former selves. The windmills are still solidified in a profound history connected to the town of San Francisco, lacking in their previous luster and renowned complex craftsmanship. Once upon a time, these majestic attractions were liable for daily pumping up to 1 1⁄2 million gallons of water. They are now serving as historic gems that need a little polishing before they shine to their greatest potential.
