Molen De Os (romp/restant) Visit the website
Molen De Os is a former oil mill on the Zaanse Schans that was built before 1663. This mill is located between the sawmills 'het Jonge Schaap' and the 'Klaverblad'. De Os is one of the oldest industrial mills in the Zaan region and that says a lot. There are many different mills in this area. The mill was operated on wind power until 1916. In that year the hood, the blades and the scaffolding were removed, after which the mill was only used on engine power. From 1931, De Os was only used as a warehouse. The barns of the mill are now inhabited. The interior of the mill is still there, so the mill can always be restored and used again if needed.
