This was definitely worth a quick stop. However, it is not located on Cove Rd. It’s at the intersection of 6a and Old County Road, beside Orleans Inn.

The grounds are beautiful and the windmill is impressive. It was not open for tours when we were there.

A real windmill that was used for milling corn etc. A person is available when open to explain all about this facility and a real good take. There is no charge or admission cost. Worth the stop. You will enjoy,

This is a great windmill to visit. Sometimes (daytime) there is a woman there that gives you a great history of the windmill and you can climb inside (free!)and look around. Nice view of the water (pond?), a little picnic table, some cute, small gardens,...More

We saw this place by accident. We mad a wrong turn and came upon it. It is near a busy road and you can only look at the outside of it.Still, it was a cool windmill.

Nothing here to see but the windmill. Seen it, done it. Nice photo opportunity. If you're here, stop by the Orlean's Inn for a bite to eat

Nice, but... I felt like I'd missed something after I read the placards and walked around the windmill. It's very central in Orleans and next to a great restaurant with a patio overlooking the Town Cove - but aside from that...

It's amazing how much history can be learned throughout Cape Cod. The Jonathan Young windmill is another example of such history. Try to find out when it is open to the public before visiting because it was closed when we stopped by in May 2017....More
