Here’s how they ground corn in the 1640s. This is a nice stop. Interpreters explain the history and answer any questions, helping visitors get a sense of the area, the history and early American machines.

This is a nice quick diversion less than half a mile from the Cape Cod Rail Trail, so is a pleasant picnic spot for bikers. The mill itself contains some historical photos and background, and the person manning the booth had more information to share.

This is free to go to. Inside it was explained how the windmill works. Sometimes in the afternoon they will have activities for the kids.

So after passing this for many years I finally stopped. It is actually a very nice spot, right there on Route 6. It is a fairly large green space perfect for relaxing and reading on a perfect summer afternoon. Along the perimeter are a couple dozen...More

Our first trip here we had stopped for a quick photo-op and to let the kids run around in the grass for a bit. Unfortunately, the windmill wasn't open. A few days later, on the way back from Provincetown, we saw the windmill was open...More
