Welcome to Chatham's Godfrey Windmill

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to visit the Godfrey Windmill

this summer.  We hope you enjoyed your visit as much as

we enjoyed welcoming you to the mill!

 

We will resume our tours and events next June - the 2018 schedule

will be posted when it becomes available.

Chatham's Godfrey Windmill is one of the few remaining historic grist mills on Cape Cod.  The mill is open for tours during the summer months and twice each year this mill is put in operation and grinds corn the way it did when it was built 220 years ago.

Before and After:  The Godfrey Windmill (a.k.a. the Chatham Windmill) photographed in May 2011 (inset) and September 2014

The windmill underwent an extensive restoration in 2009-12.  Now it is fully functional and can grind grain into flour, just as it did in the 18th and 19th centuries.  The mill was rededicated May 19, 2012 as part of Chatham's Tercentennial Celebration.  (For more about the restoration, click here)

 

The restoration was featured on WCVB-TV's Chronicle in July 2012.  Click here to see the episode entitled Chatham:  Beaches and Baseball, which includes footage of the newly-restored Godfrey Mill. The footage of the windmill begins at the 2:10 minute mark of the video.

(It can take a few minutes for the Chronicle video to upload, so please be patient.)
