Site of First Cape Cod Windmill "Discovered"

The likely site of the first windmill built on Cape Cod was discovered - in Orleans! The 'hunt' has been underway for several months. The discovery of several windmill artifacts, including 3 early millstones, within a block of each other and near a suspected site has given researchers the best evidence yet of the early site. The windmill was probably built in the 1650's and it was close to today's Skaket Beach. Read the article (and check out the photos) from the Cape Cod Times...Here.
