Colonial Windmill
Williamsburg Series #12

$4.50
"A colonial windmill was a large and complicated machine built for the simple purpose of grinding small grains. William Robertson's windmill closely resembled the one at the Windmill, Cooper, and Rural Trades Site: a narrow, two-story house balanced on an oak post and fitted with four 26-foot frames rigged with line sails. When the wind rose, a 20 to 30 mile-per-hour breeze was best, the miller pivoted the house to catch it."
