The Heimolen (also known as Molen van 't Heike, Molen van Reet, Molen van den Driese) in the hamlet of Heiken in the Belgian municipality of Aartselaar is a windmill used to grind grain into flour. This standard mill was built in ca 1801. The year 1801 is the oldest inscription on the middle of the catch side between the flour and the stone attic. The mill was hit hard twice, during the invasion of the German armies during the First World War (1914) and in the summer of 1957 when the blades and the gears were destroyed by a lightning strike. After this the mill was sold to the lord of the Cleydael, who restored it before he sold it to the municipality of Aartselaar in 1962. The monument status was granted to the Heimolen on 16th June 1978. The windage of this mill is impeded because it is enclosed between houses.
