Products and Services

Downstream from Prescott but within sight of the town, the stone windmill that became the focus of the Battle of the Windmill in November 1838 still stands. Sixty feet in height with thick rubble stone walls, it was in the midst of a tiny hamlet called Newport, containing about a dozen buildings. The windmill itself is at the top of a steep slope that rises thirty feet above the river.
