Cute place for a stop on your bike route or just simply visit for cute scenery, also a nice view of the bridge from the grounds property

It is only open on weekends. Nice and well kept. Parking only on the side of the road. A short drive from Jamestown. Nice views though.

A nice quick thing to do while in Jamestown. You also have a nice view of the bridge there, as well. No facilities here, park along side of the road and walk over. We could not go inside the windmill. Good place for the kids...More

It is interesting only during Windmill Week in July when guided tours are given, otherwise it is open only on week ends as a self guided tour.

It was closed when we got there, but we were able to take some pictures - would go there again for a closer look.

The Jamestown Windmill is a little known tourist attraction with lots of history behind it. We "discovered" it and stopped this year, we had always seen it there, but it's only open on Sunday ~ staffed by volunteers ~ so we made it a point...More
