The new brass plaque, sponsored by a grant from the William Pomeroy Foundation, was placed on the mill this summer. The windmill has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1973. An earlier plaque disappeared several years ago.
The National Register of Historic Places is the federal government’s official list of properties that are significant in American history and worthy of preservation. Sites in Jamestown including the Jamestown Windmill and the Beavertail Light are listed on the National Register.
