      The following is translated from a German online newspaper so some words/phrases may not have translated well, but you can still get the idea.

      Wiebelskirchen: A nondescript house in the Martin-Luther-Street turned out by new research Recognized as the oldest house in the district of Neunkirchen and one of the oldest in the Saarland. It dates back to the Renaissance.

      The plaster is crumbling in some places , the shutters hang something wrong, the color of the window jambs from leaves. Only half the story

      On the lintel can be seen only faintly the painted with black letters, years number, The construction date of the otherwise unremarkable building in the Martin- Luther -Str 17 in Wiebelskirchen states: 1732. This is not remarkable, since houses from the Baroque period, there are still many in the Saarland, some in Wiebelskirchen. But the date on the receipt tells only half the story, as it turned out now.

      As early as 1979 was Horst Fritz, the first director of the museum of local history and culture club Wiebelskirchen become aware during construction work on the property and opened a bricked inside doorway. But only in 2009 after a change of ownership, the local historian Norbert Schuler Bright and Olaf were given the opportunity to something closer look at the old building of "Harig's house," as it is called by the locals, and even put more on brushing Sandsteingewände free. In archives rummaging

      However, their profiles fit so not for the stated date of construction , but seemed to be older. It was decided that the historical sources and archives to pull consult to find out more about the origins. In his research into ancient inhabitants and tax lists Schuler found out that the building mid-18th Century property of the butcher Caspar Koch, who had apparently completely renovated it after marriage with the local widow Luise Barbara Neufang, born Tobae. For possession of Tobae family included the neighboring house, now Martin -Luther-Str 15 15

      The name Tobae can be traced back to 1602 or even 1634 in the lists, then the trace is lost in the mists of history. Had one with Harig's house the headquarters of this clan on?

      So the Curator of Landesdenkmalamt Mario Reuter Could not answer this question with certainty the site visit in the listed building. He commissioned the restorers Mrziglod - Leiß from Tholey to perform a comprehensive architectural survey and examine the interesting findings in more detail. After detailed Measuring and dendrochronological analysis of several wood samples turned out that the origins of the house date back to the period around 1525. Reveal traces of fire that this building was, however, probably in the 30-Year War largely destroyed. In Saarland, a rarity.

      The analysis of the ceiling beams showed that it had been rebuilt in its present form under extension of the original floor plan back in 1732. "To be able to demonstrate in a domestic building buildings from the Renaissance, in the Saarland is a rarity," said the building researcher Niko Leiß. Most places are been in this country by the wars of the 17th century so badly destroyed or depopulated that today hardly any houses from the Middle Ages or the early modern period were obtained.

      The Harig's house therefore am certainly one of the oldest houses Wiebelkirchen. For the home and Cultural Association, this result is further trace a pleasant surprise and an incentive, the historic structure in Wiebelskirchen.

      The new owner is also surprised and also a little proud. For the near future, he plans a careful renovation. The findings of the Renaissance to stick with naturally visible. Guidance is offered.

      The home and culture club Wiebelskirchen offers on Saturday October 19th 15clock, a leadership under the guidance of the National History coupler Norbert Hell to the environment of the Ev. Church. It is also exploring the interior of "Harig's house." Meeting point is the fountain at the church.
