The windmill was first mentioned on maps in 1555. In 1930 this mill could not operate on wind alone any longer, due to the erection of a new overhead electric power line just beside the windmill. Although a diesel engine was installed to drive the millstones, the windmill could no longer be operated profitably and in 1947 the mill was demolished. In 1985, a charity to rebuild the mill was founded. An old oil mill was found and the charity purchased the oil millís body. After reconstruction by volunteers and professionals the mill was opened by Prince Claus on the 9th of May in 1990.
