The De Weert mill can be found in the city of Meppel. An active group of millers—or as they are called in Drenthe’s regional dialect, mulders—ensure there is plenty of activity surrounding the mill. Meppel’s smallest shop has a broad range of products on offer, including flour, linseed oil, mustard and Vins Dumoulin.

According to its gable stone, located along the northern side of the small river Reest, De Weert was built in 1807. The mill, also known as Eekmolen, was the most important bark mill of Meppel’s tanning industry.  Surrounding the mill used to be three wooden sheds, which originally served for the storage of eek (oak bark). Following sharp declines in the demand for oak bark, the mill was shut down in 1937; everything, except the substructure, was demolished. In 1998 the mill was restored and became operational again.
