Notes
Survey number HAER NY-67
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-8).
Building/structure dates: 1820 initial construction
Significance: The Beebe Windmill was one of the first Long Island windmills to be equipped with a fly, regulators and cast iron gearing. It is also the only known surviving Long Island windmill to which these features are original. The ogee cap of the Beebe Windmill is the only instance of a decorative design in a Long Island windmill. All these features mark a departure from local millwriting tradition and make the Beebe the only surviving Long Island windmill which compares to English windmills of the same period.
