Definitely worth a walk down to the windmill, and then walk around the Labyrinth that is laid out in stones on the slopes just beside it. A great way to spend a peaceful evening or late afternoon away... read more »
Great historic windmill/grist mill that has been fully restored and is set in motion to grind corn two times a year (on Saturdays during Chatham's History Weekend in June, and during the Festival of the Arts in August). I make a special trip to visit the mill on these days for the rare experience of seeing a historic windmill operate the way it did during the 18th and 19th centuries. The mill is also open for guided tours MWF during the summer months. There is limited parking (this is only a concern in August during the Festival of the Arts), but the windmill is also a short walk from downtown Chatham. I would recommend a visit to this windmill to families, history buffs, those with and interest in engineering or architecture - and it is a "must-see" for mill enthusiasts!
Piece of history. Wonderful place and well cared.
