Mill De Huisman - Zaandam / Zaanse Schans

N 52.473131 / E 4.816498

Mill De Huisman was probably built in 1786 and was used as a spice mill. De Huisman is also an octagonal smock mill with scaffolding. During the Second World War, the mill was still run on wind power to generate electricity. Soon afterwards, the mill fell into disrepair. After a few more years of standing with the rods removed, it was demolished in 1955. From the original parts, supplemented by the grinding apparatus from the small spice mill Het Indisch Welvaren, the mill was rebuilt on top of the remaining paper warehouse De Haan at the Zaanse Schans.

On the mill's nameplate is written: "Hier kreeg een kippevrijer een huisman tot berijder"(Here, a chicken farmer got a house man to ride), describing the history of the mill in one sentence.
