Mill Maallust - Amerongen

N 52.000206 / E 5.456401

Sources from 1541 already write about a flour mill between Leersum and the hole of the Amerongse Berg. In 1623, miller Jacob Willem Prattenbergh grinded in the mill, built by the lord of Amerongen castle, Godard Heer van Reede. In 1830, the current stone mill was built as a belt mill to replace the old mill. The mill then got its current name. The mill remained part of the castle property of Amerongen Castle until 1853. In 1890, the mill was acquired by Hendrik Capel, who operated a steam flour factory in a warehouse next to the mill and conducted a trade in grains and animal feed. After him, the mill changed owner several times. An auction poster from 1925 shows that Maallust already had electric motors in that year. But things quickly went downhill after that. The mill was robbed of its belt, blades and hood in 1938 by order of widow J. van Ree. From around 1950, the mill was clamped by two large silos, which were later demolished.
