We stopped here on a rainy December day. Again, we found that the locale was closed and the windmill not working! It's a great example and has a nice explanation of how a windmill works.

Spotted this on a map and drove by. Entrance difficult to find and on a very busy highway. This is a small self guided walking tour. Nice grounds, good signage.
