Welcome to the Chatham Windmill

- Built by Col. Benjamin Godfrey in 1797 -

- Historically Restored in 2012 -

 

The Godfrey Windmill's 2019 tour season

has come to a close.

We thank everyone who came to see the windmill this summer!

(Our 2020 season will begin next June)

 

 

The final day of our 2019 season truly was a Grand Finale - we were able to set the mill in motion, as can be seen in this video:
