At the end of 1947 the Dorregeester was decommissioned and an electric screw pump built in the immediate vicinity took over the drainage task. The windmill fell into disrepair.

The predecessor of the current mill burned down in 1895 during heavy thunderstorms and it was rebuilt the following year.

The peaty land of 'Dorregeest'was able to drain naturally until the middle of the 17th century. In 1647 the area was reclaimed and drained because of the high levees due to the large dikes. Windmill 'De Dorregeester' was one of the windmills used to drain the polder.

A prominent feature outside the modern core of the village is the white (Dutch reformed) church, built in the fifteenth century to replace a wooden chapel demolished in 1409. The new church was ready in 1425. 25 years later it received a tower which would later also serve as a beacon. The three signal beacons for shipping were replaced only in 2008 by a modern tri-colour signalling device featuring oscillating green light on one side, an oscillating red light on the other side and a white light in the middle.
