Dorchester - Spocott Windmill

Dorchester - Spocott Windmill

The Spocott Windmill, near Cambridge Maryland, was built in 1972 by Jim Richardson, a master boatbuilder. It is a reconstruction of a windmill built by John Anthony LeCompte Radcliffe about 1852 and which blew down in a blizzard in March, 1888. John AL Radcliffe’s son, George L. Radcliffe, saved the millstones and steps from the original mill, and it was his dream to reconstruct the mill in its original location. After considerable planning the mill was re-built about 100 feet from the original mill and dedicated on Sen. George L. Radcliffe’s 95th birthday, Aug. 22, 1972. The mill is an English post mill, with the entire housing resting on one post, allowing the entire building to be turned into the wind.
