Overview
More
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.

Sorry you were disappointed with your recent visit to the Godfrey Windmill. Unfortunately, we were not open for tours on the day you visited (our summer tour schedule begins next week). Perhaps the opportunity to see inside the mill would have made your visit more...More

Took just a short side trip to see this and it was closed. Still very interesting to see how it worked from the outside. It's odd-shaped but apparently the norm in these parts. Worth a stop.

It was an enjoyable walk through a neighborhood to see this windmill. Not much to do but sit down and relax.

This little area was off the beaten path as we took on our morning walk. The windmill is accompanied by a meditation labyrinth. So, if you are in for a breather and want to chill your mind... put this on your list. ;)
