De molen werd gebouwd in 1742 en stond oorspronkelijk in Schaffen, op de Doodsberg. In 1887 verhuisde hij naar de Mierenberg in Assent. De molen was in werking tot 1953. Zes jaar later kocht de stad deze aan en werd hij op de stadswallen heropgebouwd. Vandaag behoort de molen tot het patrimonium van het Provinciedomein Halve Maan, dat in samenwerking met 'Levende Molens' het monument beheert en maalvaardig houdt.
