Grain mill De Eendracht in Gieterveen is beautifully located by the edge of the village. There are houses on one side and expansive landscapes on the other. The mill is still in operation, milling the region’s grain. Its team of volunteers is responsible for keeping the mill operational. You’re more than welcome to visit when it is. On a few special days each year, the loam oven is fired up and used to bake bread. A unique event!

This mill stood in Nieuw-Bruinen until 1877. In that year, it was rebuilt at its current location for the farmers, who would rent it out. Translated from Dutch, the text on its gable stone reads: “On 5 March 1877, the first stone was of this mill was laid by the The Worshipful Mr J.  Schummelketel, Mayor of the Gieten municipality.”  A common occurrence among mills, this mill was also damaged by fire. In 1904 its eight-sided upper part burnt down; it was later rebuilt as a round, stone mill. For a long time, the mill was in the possession of the aptly-named Mulder family (mulder being Drenthe’s provincial dialect’s word for miller). The name Mulder has been made visible in an attractive way in the mill.
