LUBBOCK - The American Wind Power Center at 1701 Canyon Lake Dr. has broken ground on a 33,000-sf building. The new building has an estimated cost of $1.4 million, according to state filings.

The building will be completed sometime in November, according to Executive Director Coy Harris. Among its proposed exhibits are:

•  a collection of grist stones from the mid-19th and early 20th centuries. Usually gray, heavy and round, grist stones were used to grind grains into flour and similar products. Each stone in the exhibit is documented with an individual history.
•  a 4,000-sf model train rail that represents early Lubbock;
•  electrical turbines, some more than a century old.

The museum is considered the largest wind power museum in the world.
