The Hook windmill in East Hampton was found last year to be suffering from some rather serious structural problems. Work started in the spring to jack the mill up and to replace the bottom portion of the corner posts. As the work continued, additional repairs were found to be necessary, with a total cost so far of around $208,000. Whilst the real mill is closed, a wooden model of the mill, constructed in 1998 for a parade float, was been relocated from its regular location in Springs to stand in front of the full size mill.
