Yorktown Windmill, Yorktown, Virginia


The Yorktown Windmill Project recently realized its goal as the windmill was installed next to the Waterman's Museum in Yorktown. Although it is based on William Buckners' windmill built in 1711 to grind flour. It was not possible to place it high on the bluff where the original stood, but its placement here will make it accessible and allow visitors to see the workings of an operating mill.
