Roekmolen is a hollow post mill in nature reserve It Eilân in Goëngahuizen, Friesland. It was moved here from polder Krieke near Aldeboarn and has been restored to working order. The mill is listed as a Rijksmonument, number 35972.
The earliest record of a mill on the previous site was on a map published by W Eekhorn in 1849. The current mill was built in 1896 and drained polder Krieke. The mill is recorded as having been restored in 1960 and again in 1976, however it spent most of the 1980s and 1990s without sails. In 2009 it was moved to its current location, restoration to working order was finished in 2011. The previous nameless mill was renamed Roekmolen.
