Judah Baker Windmill

Judah Baker Windmill

In the late 1600s, Yarmouth was home to 5 windmills – all built for grinding grain (also known as “grist”). 

The Judah Baker Windmill is Yarmouth’s last-surviving windmill.

Built in 1791, the Judah Baker Windmill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the windmill stands in a small park overlooking the Bass River and facing west toward Nantucket Sound.

The Judah Baker Windmill is located only a half-mile from Route 28. Our dedicated volunteers offer free tours of the windmill at select times from June to September.

The park is flat with grass and a brick path. Inside the windmill, there are steps to the second level. There are no restrooms at the park.
