The town has a 35' high wooden windmill that provides a public water supply for the town. The mill atop the tower is a Star brand machine with a ten-foot diameter wooden wheel and a tail. This machine was very popular in the 1900 era.

Prosperity Junction is a replica of a turn-of-the-century cattle town built in an area of the museum where a 40' high ceiling allows two story structures. The town has its own history and its own location ~ somewhere in the West. The railroad arrived a few years ago and the days of the raw frontier are fading as goods and services from the East transform it into a settled community. At its northern edge lies the town's industrial section, including a railroad depot, blacksmith shop, and livery stable. At the south end are the social elements ~ the school, the church, and residences. Between those two extremes lay the bulk of the town's business structures.
