Chatham's History Weekend 2020

COVID-19 has changed the way we do so many things, including

the way we will celebrate Chatham's History Weekend this year. 

The Godfrey Windmill will not be open for tours during

History Weekend 2020, but we are participating in

Historic Chatham's Virtual Tour


Based on last year's very successful bus tour, this year's

virtual guided tour will feature stops at

Historic Chatham's Museums and Historic Sites,

including the Godfrey Windmill.

There will be two Virtual Tours on

at 10 AM and 2 PM

The tours are Free
