The Volendam Windmill in Holland Township in Hunterdon County New Jersey. This authentic model of a wind-driven mill used for grinding raw grain into flour was designed and built over a ten year period starting in 1965 by the late Paul Jorgenson and his wife, both natives of Denmark. The mill is named for the town of Volendam in Holland. The mill is a seven-story structure with sail arms that measure 68 feet from end-to-end. It is a smock mill type of windmill that consists of a sloping, horizontally weatherboarded tower with eight sides topped with a rotating roof or cap that brings the sails into the wind. Although the sail arms on this windmill could turn, the windmill was not used for this purpose. Old milling tools, ancient millstones and wooden shoes were displayed when the mill was operational as a museum.
The windmill, once a photogenic showplace and an operating windmill, was damaged in 2007 when a severe windstorm gust snapped two of the arms. They haven't been able to find someone who knows how to fix it in the United States. Previous attempts at repair haven't been successful.
