The windmill is a building that appears in Animal Forest, City Folk and New Leaf. When 1,000,000 Bells are donated to the Town Fund, a lighthouse or a windmill will appear in the player's town after a week. The human characters can vote between the lighthouse or the windmill by talking to Pelly and selecting 'Town Fund'. The windmill will automatically be placed on the peninsula of the town by the beach. A windmill gives the player a higher town rating. In New Leaf, the Windmill appears as a Public Works Project suggested by an uchi villager, and costs 372,000 Bells to complete.
