Mill the Five Brothers - Heinkenszand
About 500 metres west of the village stands the tall stone stilted corn mill De Vijf Gebroeders. Previously, the mill had the name De Drie Gebroeders. The mill used to show signs of serious decay.
During the restoration from 1968 to 1970, much of the bulky -now electric- milling equipment was removed again. A wooden extension and a barn were also removed at that time. The five-loft yellow brick mill has never been inhabited and was in professional use until around 1970.
In 2002, the De Vijf Gebroeders foundation began raising funds for its restoration. The actual restoration could begin in 2004. On National Mills Day 2007, the mill was festively put back into operation.
