In 1879 the mill was renovated to make it suitable for grinding grain. Furthermore, the under-hammer mill was changed into an over-hammer mill to increase the efficiency of the mill. A reservoir was also constructed next to the mill. Everything to put the mill to work as hard as possible. The mill has been restored several times. Nowadays there is an exhibition in the mill about the history of the mill. In addition, you will also find information about the development of flora and fauna in the valley of the Mosbeek and there are archaeological finds on display.
