Molen Het Jonge Schaap Visit the website
Het Jonge Schaap is a sawmill that was built between 2006 and 2007 in the Zaanse Schans. This mill is a replica of a mill that was built in Zaandam in 1680. The original mill was demolished in 1942. Once in the Zaan region you could find more than a hundred working saw mills in the Bovenkruier, but now Het Jonge Schaap is the only one of its kind. The mill has been operational since the summer of 2007 and the mill will be officially used from September. The crankshaft of the mill has been broken several times, so that the mill could not turn for a while. When the mill is open you can take a look in the middle of the mill for a small fee. You can also watch a film about the construction of Het Jonge Schaap in the building next to the mill and an exhibition about sawmill life under the mill.
