It is home to a vibrant collection of working windmills, traditional houses, barns, shop and museums, built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style since 1961, during the golden age of the Zaan region. At that time, the town was developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills: wooden factories powered by wind.
