Rosmolen Erve Kots

Unique appearance

The Rosmolen Erve Kots is a unique appearance in the Erve Kots open-air museum in Lievelde. Initially this mill was used as a grist mill and was located on the farm of S.J.J. Geesink in Lievelde. However, later a fully intact oil mill appeared in the shed of G.J.J. Geesink in Lievelde.

The driving gear of this oil mill was acquired by the former owner, G.J. Weenink van Erve Kots, when the barn was to be converted into a cattle shed. In 1963, the driving gear was transported to its new destination with great care. The building for the oil mill itself, beautifully constructed in half-timbered bricks, was not completed until 1968 and the driving gear was completed in 1972.
