The story of the Schermer
The Schermerpolder, where the Museum Mill is located, was a lake of more than 4 meters deep until 1633. Between 1633 and 1635 this lake was drained by 52 octagonal polder mills. The Museum Mill is one of the remaining 11 polder mills, with which the Schermerpolder was retaken 400 years ago on the water. And the mill still works!
