This abandoned wood grinding shop was in operation since the end of the 19th century. The facilities included a hydropower plant that was integrated into the building during its construction.
The shop was used until the 1950s.
The legal basis for the construction of the wood grinding shop was a 100-year lease contract from the 1800s. The Royal Forest Treasury allowed the former landowner to create a weir and a water supply trench in the river to use the water to run the wood-cutting shop. It is unknown whether the grinding shop was operated as such
even after the hydropower plant was shut down.
There are stories about the building being checked after and secured with an alarm system; a rumor supported by the overall relatively good condition of the building and the machines.
