Mill the Windhond - Woerden
The current mill is more than 250 years old, the mill was already mentioned in 1755. The Windhond is the successor of a standerd mill that already appeared on a map around 1550. From the year 1762, the windmill has had eight different owners, of which the mill has been owned by four different generations of Hoogendoorn for 100 years.
Until 1946, the windmill was used for the production of flour for the population and in 1977, the windmill became property of the municipality of Woerden. After the death of the last descendant of the Hoogendoorn owners, the first phase of a thorough restoration took place in 1978. In 1984, a second phase was started in which several attics and the house were tackled. In 2004, new sails were mounted on the windmill. Karel Dolman is the current miller who maintains the mill. De Windhond is open three days a week. Let the miller guide you around or visit the shop and take home mill products.
