A Well-Traveled Landmark

The Old Dutch Windmill has been a familiar icon of Aruba tourism for decades, but it's no mere quirky gimmick. The structure's an authentically historic one, having been built in Holland back in 1804. In 1960, a promoter brought the windmill, storm-damaged and long abandoned, over to Aruba, where it was painstakingly reconstructed for new service as a Palm Beach-area landmark.

With its Atlantic-spanning backstory, the Old Dutch Windmill, also well known for the many shops and bars in its vicinity, stands as a unique symbol of Aruba's Netherlands heritage.
