Thießen hammer mill
The hammer mill was demonstrably in operation for 400 years. In 1603 the coppersmith journeyman "Salomon" was mentioned for the first time in the register of deaths of the Thießen church. At the turn of the century, a four-sided farmstead was built on the site by constructing various buildings. The hammer mill has been under monument protection in its entirety since 1958. Until 1960, a wide variety of equipment was manufactured in the hammer mill, such as washing kettles and distilling equipment. It was not until 1974 that the work was completely stopped. From 1983 the hammer mill was extensively renovated and conserved. The measures, which lasted for years, restored the entire building ensemble to its present form. Today, you will find a technical showcase that provides a true-to-the-original insight into the craftsmanship and technical capabilities of 400 years ago.
