We simply drove by this on our way to Provincetown. As it is off-season, we could not go inside the windmill...but I enjoy sightseeing anyway.

Stopped to take pictures of some of the windmills. They are quaint and fun to see as we traveled around Cape Cod. Great for families as most kids probably seldom get the opportunity to see windmills.

This windmill is rich with history! The gentleman inside told us AMAZING stories! We were surprised to hear it is still in working condition! It is definitely worth a 20 minute stop in town to see and take some pictures.

This historic old windmill is well maintained and provides for a few moments away from a hectic vacation schedule. This is a nice site for a few photographs and to spend 15 minutes away from other busy attractions.
