Old Hook Windmill
Hook Mill was built in 1806 when the owners of the post mill commissioned Nathaniel Dominy V to build a new smock mill with two pairs of millstones and the main post of East Hampton's oldest mill, which dated to 1736 mill.
After the village bought it in 1922, it was restored to working condition in 1939, and it functioned, seasonally, until the 1950s.
Mayor Paul Rickenbach Jr. said the mill is a significant part of East Hampton Village's history. "Without question it's one of the very tangible cornerstones of the village. It kind of sets a pattern when you travel through the village when you see that wonderful mill," he said. "It's an historic location and I think it's a very proud member of the extended East Hampton family."
King added that the Hook Mill is only mill that you can go up on all three floors during a tour. He is also hoping the village will hold a celebration of Hook Mill's re-opening, as well as a Windmill Day, sometime in October.
