Postmill De Heerser in Retie

This beautiful postmill was built in 1794 in Arendonk a neighbouring village. In 1934 the mill was moved to the present location by the new owner. At that time the mill was known as Nieuwe Molen. In 1982 the name was changed to De Heerser. These days the mill is worked by Miller Frans Geysen. Every monday afternoon and some sundays the mill is operational on a volutary base.
