BRIMFIELD — Residents Anna Ozolins and Suzanne Collins are leading an effort to restore the town's 127-year-old windmill.

They began their mission by requesting officials from St. Christopher's Parish to transfer the parcel of land on which the windmill stands to the town. That way, town officials can become involved in the financial aspects of restoring the windmill, which has deteriorated considerably in recent years. Several state grant opportunities exist to fund historical projects, and many residents are hoping the town pursues them.

"The windmill was last repaired in about 1995 or 1996, and many of the boards have rotted," Ozolins said. "It is very important to residents that the windmill be restored because it means so much to them as one of the oldest and most historical structures in town."
