The Etersheimer Braakmolen is a polder mill in Etersheim that drains the Etersheimer Braakpolder of the same name. The Etersheimer Braak was created by a dyke breach and dykes in 1632. The polder serves as sub-drainage on the Zeevang polder. In 1882, the old mill burned down, and the new mill that was built was short-lived, as it burned down in 1886. The mill was replaced by an electric pumping station in 1920 and the rods were lowered in 1926. In 1935, the hull was even sawn down above the attic. In 1999, after initiatives taken a year earlier, a foundation was set up to make the mill operational again. Finally, in 2002, the hood and rods were replaced. Ultimately, the mill was returned to working order in 2005. The mill can grind as well as grind in a circuit.
