They did not have sufficient funds to build a parish church, so they built a windmill instead. Yes, that's right. When the Meterik community wanted its own church in the village around 1890, there was no money allocated and a rather lukewarm response from the town council of Horst. So, the mill 'Eendracht Maakt Macht', which was built in Meterik in 1899, was employed to grind cattle feed for the farmers. Not only was the church built, it also had money from the mill for its annual running expenses. The name 'Eendracht Maakt Macht' is very appropriate, as it stands for "together makes us strong".
