You have to take a good look around you when you walk through Maasland. There are signs everywhere about the history. Not only like on this house, but in trees, doorways and the floor. There are archeological places and maybe even ancien people (??)
This is the place for the people from Maasland now to get married, tell about their new born child or the death of a familymember.
The town hall. Its near the Pynas where they used to do it in the old days.
This mill is rebuilded several times....and also for this year (2003) there is big maintenance needed.
A Miller and his family are living in this mill now and the mill is still needed to keep dry feet !
Fondest memory: "Dijkmolen"
3155 AV Maasland.
Only to see inside during the Westlandse Milldays.
Maasland was once very swampy. In 1391 dykes are placed and to keep dry feet they needed a mill. Till 1606 this mill was named "Lost Earning" . Cant find out what name the mill had the next 5 years, cause in 1611 they named it "Dijkmolen".
Fondest memory: In 1642 and 1653 and 1670 they rebuilded the mill radical.
In 1718 that mill is replaced with the mill we can see on this picture. The wateraxle is remeaning from 1879 and belonged to a mill called "Aalkeetbinnenpolder".
