A short-lived mill. This mill in Dorp by the Schwalm river was built by the former lord of Tüschenbroich. However, due to a lack of water power, this mill could only operate three hours a day. Despite its conversion from an oil to a grain mill, this mill could not feed a family. The last miller Hubert Königs sold the oil basins to the Loh Mill. The mill was in operation for just over 100 years. Königs' widow married a member of the Tiskens family who subsequently only farmed the land. The mill building was recently torn down (in 2003), and the mill pond has been filled in.
