Gladden Windmill is an historic windmill formerly located on Pigeon Valley Road in Napoli, Cattaraugus County, New York. The windmill was built in 1890 and is a well-preserved example of a vertical wind turbine built during the 19th century. Although no longer operational, the turbine (and associated mill structure) is a rare example of wind power technology in the United States.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1] Since its listing, the windmill has been dismantled and moved to Conewango, New York.
