"de Elephant" Mill near Burdaard

Jan Hendrik Fennema
This so called monkmill drained in former days the polder the elephant, which was set up in 1867. The regents of the polder bought in 1867 the, then already 11 years old, mill that came from the Oosterwolderpolder at Groningen for ƒ 2000, -. The mill would replace there by an on steam running pumping station. The establishment of the 'Water Authority the Wâlden' in 1970, made the mill out of use. In the years 1978/1979 and in 1991, the mill was restored. #birdaard #burdaard #de_olifant #elephant #ferwerderadeel #ferwerderadiel #friesland #fryslan #janhin #mill #mole #molen #mune #nederland #oaljefant #olifant #the_netherlands #water #watermill #watermolen
