Owner description: 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.

This windmill is kinda tucked in in a park and you don't really see it, unless you looking for it. Besides being just a beautiful spot, this place smells like history. I like that kind of stuff, so I was very happy. And I got good pictures!

We happened to see a sign while walking downtown and headed over. Awesome to see a piece history still working and learn about the area from the two gentleman working there. Highly recommend stopping and checking out!!

We absolutely loved our visit to the windmill. The volunteers were so delightful, regaling us with the history of the windmill and how it functions. We asked every question imaginable, and they were able to tell us every detail imaginable! Highly recommend this stop for anyone visiting the Cape...

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.
