National Park Seminary, Dutch Windmill, 2750 Dewitt Circle, Silver Spring, Montgomery County, MD
Significance: The Windmill is one of eight whimsical clubhouses constructed during Cassedy's early building campaign. It is an important component of NPS' eclectic campus plan that was designed to introduce a variety of architectural styles in a recreational, garden-like setting. It was the first of the exotic-type structures to be built on the campus. It resembles a whimsical garden folly instead of a dwelling house like some of the other clubhouses. The Dutch windmill is an unusual folly design.
