  • Great place to visit. Windmill is converted to a lighthouse now. In summer months it is open to see inside. Battle of 1838 occurred on this site. A Historical Site.
  • Beautiful trails along the river, I suggest late fall around dusk on sunny days
  • It was closed when we went but you can walk around the perimeter
