Mount Healthy Windmill


History and museums

windmill ruins



Mount Healthy windmill is a ruined windmill on the north side of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. It was formerly used during the plantation era of the Territory to crush sugar cane. After the collapse of the sugar economy in the early nineteenth century the windmill fell into disuse and became a ruin. It crushed cane for the sugar mill and rum distillery in nearby Brewer's Bay.

One of the owners of the mill was Balziel Hodge, son of the notorious Arthur William Hodge.

Today it is a national park.
