"Hundred Postmill is now assembled on the grounds of the American Windmill Museum.

The first windmill to be built in North America was constructed in 1621 for Sir George Yeardley on his plantation, Flowerdew Hundred, in Virginia. The original windmill was destroyed in a storm, but remains were found in later excavations.

In 1978 a new, commemorative windmill was built at Flowerdew Hundred incorporating features that illustrate the development of English windmill technology through the 18th century. In the summer of 2010 this commemorative mill was moved from Virginia to its current home in Lubbock, Texas and is one of the very few working Post-Mills in the Western Hemisphere." - American Windmill Museum
