  • Social distancing is practiced both outside and inside the windmill
  • Masks/facial coverings must be worn inside the windmill
  • These practices may be modified at any time in response to changes in  Massachusetts or Town of Chatham regulations.

*Tours may be cancelled due to rain or severe weather conditions. (This is done to protect this centuries-old mill from water damage.)
