About Jamestown Historical Society’s Windmill Day:

Windmill Day is usually held every odd numbered year.  On Windmill Day, the cloths are raised on the sails, and the bonnet is turned so that the sails catch the breeze. This year Windmill Day will be held on July 23, 2022, 10 AM – 2:30 PM with fun for all. Sails turn in the wind, children’s games, food and soft drinks.
