windmills Dolphin Inn, Chatham, Cape Code - development plans

The town of Chatham, on Cape Cod, Massachusetts is home to a fine complete windmill, a second house converted mill at Sur Mer, and a "faux" windmill at The Dolphin Inn where it serves as the Honeymoon suite.

Plans have been proposed to develop the Dolphin Inn site into 11 family homes. These plans include moving the historic inn about 15 feet, and demolition of many of the subsidiary buildings, including the "faux" windmill (which only dates from the 1980's, but has been a very visible part of the site since that time). The local historic business district commission are watching the plans carefully, and are investigating the historical background of the property.
