In the 13th century, windmills were built as power sources to grind
grain, draw water, and extract seed oils. In the 15th century, they
often were used to reclaim land by drainage. Today, the windmill ranks
with the tulips as the best-known symbols of Holland. Kinderdijk, near
Rotterdam, is renowned as the place in the Netherlands with the greatest
number of windmills. Dutch windmills have become even more popular
since the windmills at Kinderdijk and Elshout were declared World
Heritage Sites in 1997.
