Grote Geesterse Molen Visit the website
In 1819, farmer Meijer and his son-in-law were given permission to build a post mill on De Zandberg. This mill was demolished a long time later to make way for the Grote Geesterse Molen. That belt gristmill was built in 1867 and beams from the demolished stand mill were reused. The mill was in operation until the 1950s, but after that the mill fell into disrepair. The mill has been restored several times and so the mill has been preserved. In 1997 the mill was put into operation again. The mill is still regularly operated by volunteer millers. The rods of the mill, with a length of almost 21 meters, are equipped with old Dutch fencing with sails.
