This water wheel was put to use about 100 years ago, (around 1900) in this creek to pump water to a storage tank in Peter and Gunhild (Enestvedt) Kittelsland's round barn. The tank was located up in the hay mow so the water had enough height for the force of gravity to supply water to the house and other buildings. This meant raising the water about 100 feet or more with little or no expense to the family. The resourcefulness of these pioneer families was truly amazing.
