"The Old Mill" on Nantucket Island

Was visiting friends on Nantucket Island this summer and we drove by this historic landmark of a windmill. I later learned it's called "The Old Mill" and was built in 1746 by a sailor named Nathan Wilbur, who had spent time in Holland. It's now the oldest functioning windmill in America. I captured the photograph from the car window when we stopped near it.
