Accompany us on a journey to the summer of 1772. The Buff family was living in what was then the Teutonic Order administrator’s house, now known as the Lottehaus . The resident best known to us today was Charlotte, and it was due to her that Goethe visited the house almost daily. His memories and impressions are reflected in “The Sorrows of Young Werther,” the novel which made Goethe world-famous.
The purpose of a museum is to preserve the cultural heritage.This task is best ensured by taking over the historical machines and equipment of the former Winter sawmill and carpentry workshop and continuing to maintain and demonstrate them.Three times a year on so-called steam and gate days the historical machines and equipment are demonstrated in operation.The HTM was appointed Regional Environmental Education Centre (RUZ) by the Hessian Ministry of Culture in 2007. This puts it in a row with the 10 other RUZ of the state of Hesse. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
