Description
Founded in 1912 during an intense land speculation boom, many of Montezuma's early citizens were Mennonites seeking religious freedom and fertile farmland. Wheat and grain still provide the economic mainstay, but fallow fields now yield a more unusual commodity—electricity. With some 170 windmills spread over 205 square miles just east of town, Gray County Wind Farm generates enough energy to power 33,000 homes. A good viewing area lies at the junction of US 56 and CR 17, where an information kiosk explains the operations.
