The Windmill is a landmark that first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk. When a total of 1,000,000 Bells is donated into the Town Fund (after the fountain has been built), the human residents in town will have a chance to vote (by talking to Pelly in the Town Hall) on whether a Windmill or a Lighthouse should be added to town. The winning choice will appear near the beach after a week of voting, and Tortimer will appear next to it on the day of completion. Neither the Windmill nor the Lighthouse appear to have any effect on gameplay.

It is possible to switch from the Windmill to the Lighthouse (or vice versa) by donating a further 1,000,000 Bells to the Town Fund after the initial structure is built.
