The Grafelijke Korenmolen (Count’s Grain Mill) - Zeddam

N 51.903126 / E 6.253138

Along with the Buitenmolen in Zevenaar, this mill is the oldest existing windmill in the Netherlands, with walls of the mill in Zeddam still in the most original condition.

The mill was probably partially built into a hill, after which a mound was erected around it. The wheelwork has always operated from the attic. In 1839, a second pair of millstones were added and the outside staircase was replaced by an indoor staircase. The mill was restored in 1963 and 1974. The last restoration could not prevent the mill being shut down in 1982 due to safety reasons. The mill’s various problems were repaired with a new restoration in 1990/1991 and its recommission was celebrated on 2 July 1991.
