Mill Het Jonge Schaap (The Young Sheep)

The newest asset of the Society of Zaan Mills is the brand-new saw Mill Het Jonge Schaap (The Young Sheep, situated near the Zaanse Schans. The original mill by this name was located behind the railway station of Zaandam and was demolished in 1942. This wooden saw mill is located in the Zaanse Schans, in the municipality of Zaanstad.

The original mill was built in 1680 and in 1942 was demolished. Between 2005 and 2007 it spent to build a replica who has become among the mills "De Zoeker" and "De Os" at the Zaanse Schans. To create the replica using detailed drawings Anton Sipman had made before the original mill was demolished.

Fortunately prior to its demolition Anton Sipman, a teacher at a technical school, had measured all parts and had made an extensive set of very detailed drawings. These provided the basis for modern computer-drawings, ultimately leading to the start of the reconstruction of the saw mill. The first pile was driven into the ground on September 24, 2005 and almost exactly two years later - on September 27 - three of our life members lifted the brake rope and thus officially put the new mill into action.

The reconstruction of Het Jonge Schaap is the largest project in the rich history of our Society which demanded an investment of nearly 1.9 million euro. The funds were raised by considerable subsidies from the Province of North-Holland and the city of Zaanstad as well as from major and minor sponsors, donations and efforts of our own members.

The Mill Het Jonge Schaap (The Young Sheep is also a great wedding location and the ideal place for a barbecue, drinks or product presentation. The mill is an interesting and fun outing for individuals and groups, for Dutch and foreign, for adults and children, both private and business, schools, businesses and institutions.
