These Minecraft windmill build ideas are sure to impress your friends and other players.

Windmills have been in use for thousands of years. Windmills as we know them today began appearing in the 8th and 9th century in the middle east and West Asia.

The design has evolved over the centuries, but the general concept has remained unchanged. In more ancient times, the most important use for the windmill was grinding grain and pumping water. Today, we also use windmills to generate electricity.
