Early history

The community of Albershausen can look back on almost 750 years of history. The exact date of foundation is not known. The community is mentioned for the first time in a document from 1275. Neolithic finds suggest that as early as 3000 to 1800 before the birth of Christ people roamed the Albershausen markings and perhaps already settled there. Already around 1700 BC Alemannic grave goods were very likely discovered, but their meaning was not recognized. From these finds we know that around 700 and 800 AD on the mark, probably in the area of ​​the town center, Alemanni settled.

Origin of the place name

The place name probably refers to a personal name of an Alber or Albheri. The Albershausen parish description from 1828 should therefore be right with its statement, probably taken from the oral tradition at the time, "according to a document without a year, the builder and owner of the first house in the current Albershausen was a certain Johannes Alber" with regard to the name Alber.

The place name was also associated with the field name "Vor Albers Holz" near Schlierbach. This piece of forest, located on the border with Albershausen, west of the Tannengarten, appears in a document in 1484 as Albernholz.

The Schenkenmühle, which belonged to the Filseck and which disappeared during the Thirty Years' War, was once located near Albershausen . It was on Albershausen's marking in the area of ​​the sheep farm. However, through marriage it passed to the owner of the Filseck Castle. A castle is said to have once stood very close to it on the eastern edge of the forest above the Schafhof, of which ruins are said to have existed in 1844. Its location was probably near today's Vollmer nursery. Proof of this are the local field names “Buschel” and “Im Burgstall”.

Former districts

The Öschleshof belonged to Albershausen since 1850 and the Schafhof, which had been assigned to Uhingen until then. On November 14, 1850, this farm was contractually assigned to Albershausen. At first the Schafhof was still a sub-municipality of Albershausen, since 1927 the independence of the sub-town ended and the Schafhof was united with Albershausen.
