The Sint Anna corn belt mill is located near the Dijkerakker. This mill was built between 1911 and 1912. Before this mill was built, the farmers of Moesel, Keent and Altweertheide had to travel a long way to grind their grain, but that was solved with the construction of this mill. In the construction of this mill, parts of the much older Clercx mill that used to be on the Driesveld in Weert were used. The white windmill with accents in the colors of the flag of the Netherlands is a striking appearance in the green environment. You can already see the mill protruding above the landscape from afar. In 1950 the owner of Sint Anna sold the mill because he no longer saw a future in it. The municipality of Weert then saved the mill from destruction. The mill was thoroughly restored between 2010 and 2011. Since then, volunteer millers have been running and grinding the mill regularly. This prevents the mill from standing still too often and decaying.
