Built in 1705, still occasionally a working windmill on the eastern tip of Ile-Perrot just across the river from home. It’s unusual in being a fortified windmill with narrow slots in the walls to shoot back at attacking Iroquois … whether they did attack I can’t say but there was a fear of such happening at the time … there was also an illegal trade in “untaxed” furs passing through once, the Revenue agents would have viewed that badly. A good place to enjoy local history and at the same time get a fill of the excellent waterfowl to be observed on the river along this shore. These days a national historical monument in its own Parc historique with seasonal animations by actors in costume.
