Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thank you for supporting Windy Hollow again this year! It has been a great adventure! We served lots of  great food at the restaurant and had a wonderful time at the Flea Market at the Country Store! American Pickers visited and featured Windy Hollow on the “Slim Pickings” episode which led us in to saving the barn where the episode was filmed.

There was a lot of hard work in the old barn over the course of the summer but with lots of friends and dedicated staff members, we were able to open in October! Over 1,000 people toured Hal’s Museum! The most ever in a day! I know he would be proud! 20 vendors joined us in our Flea Market celebration! Everyone seemed to have a great time! Let’s do it again!

From the Miller’s and the staff, we wish you the best as we celebrate the end of 2016 and start 2017! Here’s to you!

October 29th, 2016, Windy Hollow Speedway and the Windy Hollow Country Store will host a Flea Market and Swap Meet for the 1st time since 1992!
