In the old days, the people of Sønderho were only allowed to get their wheat ground in the King's Mill in Ribe on the mainland, but in 1701 the reverend of Sønderho received permission to build their own mill.
Since then a few more mills have been built. For instance the "Bookmill", which burned down in 1894. The mill we know today was built one year later and was actively used until 1923.
Mid July the Sønderhoer-days take place at the mill, when a lot of the residents still like to dress up in the old national costumes of Fanoe.
It's a delight to see these old costumes and a visit an absolute must, if you are staying on Fanoe during this time
