Water wheel

Pioneer water wheel
The Kittelsland Water Wheel and Enestvedt Monument

The old water wheel and marker lies just off of CR 15 along the Minnesota River Valley in Renville County. The road is a portion of the Minnesota Valley Scenic Byway.

Ole Enestvedt originally homesteaded the farm in 1867. By 1900, Enestvedt Seeds was an established seed business selling to area farmers. The family owned business is still located on the original homestead.
