Geschiedenis
De huidige molen werd eerst oorspronkelijk in 1851 gebouwd door E. Postel nabij “De Diepe Put” op de Zwiepse Berg bij Barchem. Daarna werd de molen wegens ongunstige windvang een paar keer verplaatst. In 1880 werd de molen op de huidige locatie opgetrokken.

In 1992 werd voor het behoud van de molen deze ondergebracht in de “Stichting behoud Zwiepse Molen”.
Vanaf die tijd dreef Evert Postel Jr. met zijn vrouw een voederhandel en restaurant. In 2006 moest de voederhandel wegens omzetverlies opgedoekt worden.
