People rarely get a chance to get this close to a real windmill. Nice little park surrounds it. Right off the main highway.

Had a volunteer inside of windmill who seemed quite knowledgeable of history of windmill as well as along the New England coast. On Wednesdays and Thursday they also have a craft show on grounds with many local vendors.

Cool seeing this old school windmill off the highway. It's located in a nice small park. In the summer they have various events here. Definitely stop and check it out and grab a cool photo.
