Mill Het Prinsenhof (The Prince's Court)

Het Prinsenhof (The Prince's Court) is fit up again in the seventies to hull barley. Het Prinsenhof (The Prince's Court) is a peeling mill on the Weelsloot in Westzaan, Zaanstad, Zaandam. Originally this octagonal bovenkruier (windmill of which only the cap is movable) with scaffolding was also build as peeling-mill about 1722. In 1899 the mill started to be used for the processing of coffee husks from Hamburg and Bremen, an activity that was to continue for the next 20 years. In the early years of this century the mill digested shells, and from 1918 till 1954 “Het Prinsenhof” grinded wood-saw-dust into wood-meal to fabricate linoleum. This was dangerous work, because of the fire- and explosion-danger. But the skills of the miller prevent accidents to happen. In 1960 the association “De Zaansche Molen” became owner of the mill.
