Wheat mill De Nachtegaal - Middenbeemster

N 52.564568 / E 4.918981

After the Beemster was reclaimed for the second time in 1612, the intention was to build five wheat mills in the reclamation. Ultimately, however, there was never more than one. The mill was in regular operation until 1960. After that, it was still used occasionally, but in the last years before its restoration in 1973, it was only used for storage. After this restoration, the mill was operated again on a small scale for some time. Then the mill was used as storage for a furniture showroom and fell into a very bad state.

The mill was dismantled and relocated on 18 December 2010, pending rebuilding and repair. Ownership then passed to the Foundation for the Preservation of De Nachtegaal. After raising sufficient funds, the mill could be restored to its new location.

The shop sells its own milled grain. When the mill is open, the millers are happy to tell you its story during a guided tour.
