Long Description:
After a massive restoration effort on the part of the Barbados National Trust, Morgan Lewis Mill is one of the largest, oldest mills in the region and is virtually intact. Typical of the wind-driven mills of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, it helped produce the sugar for which Barbados used to be famous throughout the world. Housed inside the mill is a dynamic display of old photographs documenting the sugar glory days.

Open to the public 9am-5pm daily. This is the largest and lone intact sugar windmill in the Caribbean, and had been among the World Monuments Fund list of 100 Most Endangered Sites in the World (1996). This Dutch-influence mill is perhaps the only one where you can still see the fully intact wheel house and ‘sails’.
