Built in 1797, the Chatham Windmill (Godfrey Windmill) is one of the few historic wind-powered grist mills that remain on Cape Cod. It is open for guided tours during the summer months. Twice each year the mill is set in operation and, weather conditions permitting, the mill grinds corn just as it did in the 18th and 19th centuries.

If you're visiting Chatham, you really should visit the windmill. They have done a fantastic job restoring the structure and the people there explaining things are really knowledgable about the place. Worth a half hour or so, for sure. Be sure to check the times...More

Cape Cod has a number of old windmills and other historical items to visit. The Godfrey windmill is one such sight. Unfortunately, we were there on a day when it was closed. Still, fun to see from the outside.
