This octagonal tower mill was built in 1806 as an oil and hulling mill. In 1820 a grinder was installed in the mill and from then on flour was also made in the mill. In 1976 the mill was bought by the municipality of Ommen. The mill was then restored, but the interior was almost completely demolished by then. In the late 1980s, flats were built close to the mill, which meant that the mill could catch a lot less wind. Nevertheless, the mill was regularly operated by volunteer millers during that period. It was dismantled in 2013 due to a radical recovery of the mill. Parts of the mill were replaced and the English wheel mechanism was also renewed. In 2014, the mill was ready to turn again, but shortly after the recovery, the almost new outer rod hit the hull while turning. As a result, the mill came to a standstill again. The damaged outer rod had to be repaired and re-plugged. In the meantime, the mill is ready to turn again.

Landgoed het Laer


7731 AV Ommen

There is an old manor on this estate. It is unknown when the house was built exactly, but it was first mentioned in 1382. This building was nothing more than a refined farmhouse with a special gentleman's room for the owner. In 1742 Johan Lodewijk bought the farm together with his wife and had the manor renovated in a classical style. He also had an impressive park built with a long driveway at the front and a grand canal. In 1850 the house was rebuilt and expanded in neoclassical style. The current country house was the result of this. In 1932 the house was bought by the municipality of Ommen, which has preserved the cultural-historical monument. A few years ago, the country house was completely renovated in style and transformed into the fairytale location it is today. On the wooded estate you will find a special semi-circular garden arbor, an ice cellar, an orangery and a pigeon tower.
