the Yemin Moshe Windmill in Jerusalem
The Yemin Moshe was created in the year 1891 outside the city walls by Moses Montefiore. It was originally intended to resolve the unsanitary conditions and overcrowding in the old city. At first, some of the people were hesitant to live in the village so the first houses were constructed with high gates and walls that are typically locked during night time.
