Mill “De Ooievaar” (The Stork)

Mill “De Ooievaar” (The Stork) is an, originally in or shortly before 1622 as oil-mill build, octagonal bovenkruier (windmill of which only the cap is movable) with scaffolding. The mill is situated right across mill “De Dood”. After 20 years of neglecting, “De Zaansche Molen” became owner of the mill in 1955. In the following year it was restored. “De Ooievaar” differentiates it self from the greater part of the Zaanse mills because the accessory barn is standing next to the mill and is not a part of the sub-structure.

In 1989 De Ooievaar welcomed a new neighbour: a well known manufacturer of nuts. This oil mill close to the Queen Juliana Bridge in Zaandam. De Ooievaar has gazed out over the Zaan towards its neighbour across the water in Zaandijk - the flour mill known as De Bleeke Dood.
