Steenmeulen et Musée Rural Flamand

Mill (TERDEGHEM)


Spoken languages : anglais, néerlandais


The "Steenmeulen", meaning stone mill in Flemish is the only Dutch-style working brick mill in the region and is classed as an "Historic Monument". It has three pairs of millstones to grind grain and one for oil. The museum next to it takes you on a walk through the Flemish countryside between the late 19th century and the early 20th. You'll see a range of different objects, furniture, clothes and tools from the period, as well as agriculture machines in perfect working order. The flour mill shows the evolution of flour manufacturing techniques as windmills began to disappear. In the house next to it, daily life as a miller is depicted by automatons and a film.
