Would love to have been able to see this up close but due to Covid-19, it is open by appointment only. We were able to turn down a side road where I was able to stop and take a picture.

A wonderful example of historical preservation
Jun 2019
The Jamestown Historical Society has done a wonderful job preserving and maintaining this 225+ year old structure. It provides a glimpse into the island’s agricultural past and begs comparison to modern wind turbines used to generate electricity. Volunteers are on site when the windmill is open to answer questions.

Really neat learning experience for the kids
Jul 2019 • Family
Another free attraction in Jamestown. Park and visit between 1-4 on summer Saturdays. Lovely garden area greets you as you approach the windmill. They used it to make corn meal and they still operate it from time to time to let people try the fresh corn meal. The self tour only takes about 20 minutes. It’s a nice area and interesting to say the least.

It is an very interesting old windmill, but not as yet open for the season. There were people working on it to get it ready.

Old Time Corn Windmill
Jul 2018 • Family
Only open at certain times so get a schedule. It is free but donations are accepted. There is parking no cost but the entrance is a little tight. There are three floors inside the mill. Very hot inside but sort of interesting. Can be worth visiting.

For milling grain
Jun 2018 • Couples
This historical mill was used for grain, not water pumping. Very easy to find and good descriptive signs. Open for inside tours on Sunday afternoons, but may be visited outdoors any day.

A Taste of Jamestown
Nov 2017 • Family
We visited this old windmill after our visit to the Glass studio next door. The glass artist could be a guide as he gave us some history. Lovely to photograph and in the background was the lovely Newport Pell Bridge. Would love to return in the spring on the day they put of the sails on the windmill and allow public to tour.

Delightful and charming historic landmark!
Sep 2017 • Family
Delightful little historical stop and worth a look at this 230-year old structure from the state's early days. Hard to believe this windmill's been around since shortly after the War of Independence - and it looks great for its age! The windmill's got 3 levels (which you wouldn't have guessed from the outside) and you're able to climb up to the very top bonnet where the windmill blades connect with a big gear to run the millstones. Very nice displays on each level as well. Beautiful views of the Newport bridge too! The hours are limited though - so need to check its schedule - and manned by a volunteer docent. The windmill is put into full operation a couple of times a year, demonstrating the corn grinding - per the docent, the next demonstration will be July 21, 2018!

Free to the public. Just a note: no restrooms or running water on site.

COVERED BRIDGES, LIGHTHOUSES AND A WINDMILL......OH, MY!!
Sep 2017 • Friends
We have just returned from a New England trip which included lots of plans to see covered bridges and lighthouses and thanks to this "little jewel" a windmill.
As others have said in their reviews, the windmill is only open on weekends for self guided tours and parking is limited and only available on the side of the road; but this is an excellent place for a quick stop and great photo opportunity.
