Koutermolen [mill]

From every hilltop in Zwalm, the white stone vat of the Koutermolen in Rozebeke immediately catches the eye. Sometimes it glows in the sun… sometimes it looks dreary in the fog or rain, but it is always a symbol of faded mill glory. The history of this grain and oil windmill dates back to before 1771. Due to a break in one of the blades, this mill was mechanized in 1931. It remained operational until 1955. Since 1975, after thorough renovations, the mill has been used as a residence.
