Windmills are an iconic image and were used throughout history in most parts of the world. The traditional geometric patterns of the windmill’s blades are the inspiration for this design. The name comes from the Irish “white windmill,” Blennerville Windmill, built in 1800. Restoration work on the mill began in 1984 and the mill was opened in 1990.
