Steenderen is a former municipality and a village in the eastern Netherlands. It has been part of the new municipality of Bronckhorst since 2005.[3]

History

It was first mentioned in 1046 as Stenere, and means "stone buildings on a sandy ridge".[4] In 1217, a parish church is established. The Dutch Reformed Church has elements dating from the 14th century. In 1782, it suffered a fire after a lightning strike, and was rebuilt. The church was restored between 1966 and 1972.[5] In 1840, it was home to 486 people.[3]

The grist mill Bronkhorstermolen dates from 1844 and was restored in 1960.[5] The potato and chips factory Aviko [nl] was founded in Steenderen in 1962. In 2019, a 35 metres (115 ft) refrigerator tower was constructed, giving Steenderen three towers.[3]
