We drove by the Old Mill several times on our stay in Nantucket and it is incredible to know that it still operates. The mill is very well preserved and maintained. It is situated on a road nearby the center of town.More

This was an interesting site for an historic tour. It's the oldest and the only one left, so it's worth a visit. They will even show you how it operates.More

Just a short bike ride or medium walk will take you to this beautiful windmill on the hill! I took a bicycle and enjoyed the nice fresh air. Because it was early season, the wind props were not installed. But that did not takeaway from...More

I have driven by this lighthouse many times, and finally stopped to view and it is well worth seeing. It majestically stands reminding us of how windmills were an important part of life during certain periods.
