The Chatham Windmill is a historic windmill at Chase Park, Shattuck Place in Chatham, Massachusetts. The mill, built in 1797 by Benjamin Godfrey, was first used to grind corn, and originally stood on Stage Harbor Road. It was moved to its present location in 1955, the year it was given to the town. The methods used in its construction suggest that the builder was from the southeast of England.[2]

The windmill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
