Willow Street Windmill

Here is a photo of the Willow Street windmill located on Bass River in Yarmouth on Cape Cod originally built in 1791.

This windmill had blades which turned round and round with the wind to probably grind grain into flour.

Today, there is a renewed interest in wind power on the Cape although some people don't like the thought of having windmills near their property.

"What goes around comes around", I guess.
