Oortman mill

Oortman mill - Lattrop

N 52.425363 / E 6.974706

The first mill on this spot was built in 1779 in Tjamsweer, near Appingedam, as a peel and oil mill. In 1910, miller Johannes Oortman ordered this mill to be moved by ship to Lattrop and rebuilt as a corn mill. In 1911, the mill was put into operation, but already in 1933, the purchase of a diesel engine caused the decline of the mill. This led to its dismantling in 1941.

The mill stood without sails and in use as a motor mill until 1983. In 1981, the Oortmanmolen Foundation took the mill into its care in order to preserve it for posterity. New materials were used to rebuild the mill, so that today it stands in full glory in Lattrop.
