Spocott Windmill

This is a great historic site to take the kids to. The one room schoolhouse is fully furnished and shows how school used to be. The small tenant's cottage is also furnished with period items and the upstairs is very interesting. http://visitdorchester.org/spocott-windmill/ Once a self-contained community, ‘Spocott’ today has the only existing post windmill for grinding grain in Maryland. Also on the property are a colonial tenant farmhouse and a one-room schoolhouse. Under “fair winds,” the mill is still operated from time to time. There has been a succession of windmills at this location dating to the 1700s. A similar working windmill stood near the site until it was knocked down by the blizzard of 1888. This replica, built in 1972 by noted boatbuilder Jim Richardson, contains the original grinding stones and interior steps. The exterior steps provide a glimpse of nearby Gary Creek. http://spocottwindmill.org/
