Corona virus/COVID-19 update: Please note that, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Massachusetts has mandated the closure of all non-essential businesses and organizations. While these regulations remain in effect, the Godfrey Windmill will remain closed to the public.
Due to the pandemic, our 2020 Tour Schedule is subject to change and the information on this website will be updated as new information becomes available.
COVID-19 has changed the way we do so many things, including

Additional information about the virtual tour and History Weekend 2020 can be found on the Historic Chatham website.
We will be open for tours in the summer of 2020, when our guides will be available to discuss the inner workings of this historic grist mill and to answer your questions.
*Tours may be cancelled due to rain or severe weather conditions. (This is done to protect this centuries-old mill from water damage.)
