In its golden age the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a
scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills (wooden factories powered by
wind). In these small factories many tasks were being executed with the aid of

flower, cocoa powder and many other things.
The prosperity in the 18th and 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse
