STONE WINDMILL located in Chapman Village Park, Morristown, N.Y.. Built in 1825 by Scottish millwright, Hugh McConnell. Never completed because of his drowning in 1826. The stone building has been used as a jail and a WWII air warning post. Currently listed on the National Register.

Blogger won't show the photograph, but I love windmills! There's one in the Bois across the street from our apartment.

That would have been a very sturdy jail! But I dont like to think of it being used for a jail...its too nice for that.
