Site of the Papsdorf Windmill - home of Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Gerlach

Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Gerlach and his family were residents of the farm and mill that used to stand just northwest of the village of Papsdorf. 

Here is a map of the area from around 1839. The yellow square indicates where the Papsdorf Windmill once stood. 

Below is an old photograph of the farm and windmill.

The farm house still stands today, however the windmill is gone.  Google maps has aerial views that show the property today. 

Here is a description of the Papsdorf Windmill, in German.
