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 a grinding shop 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.
