De Plantage

De Plantage, a park in Schiedam, is located between Lange Nieuwstraat and Tuinlaan. It was laid out in 1767 by city architect Arij van Bol'es. At the time, the area was the green zone on the outskirts of Schiedam. In 1826 the Plantation was redesigned under the direction of landscape architect Jan David Zocher. Around 1954, the Plantage was redesigned by Jan Bijhouwer, who removed many nineteenth-century elements and, if requested, added a playground and a music stage. Bijhouwer worked together with the head of the Schiedam public gardens department, Jan Jacob Schipper.

The mill at Noordvest 40 is the "neighboring mill" of mill De Noord and was built in 1785 by order of a number of burners as a stone scaffolding mill between the mill De Noord and the former mill De Star, but against the wishes of several other burners. They were afraid that the new mill would hinder the wind catch for other mills due to its width and size. The mill milled for the roasters until 1917.
