Eving old colony
The settlement was built between 1898 and 1899 by the United Stein und Hardenberg colliery for foreign workers who were increasingly recruited during this period and originally consisted of 76 houses with 270 apartments. The center of the settlement is the Eving colony welfare building on Nollendorfplatz.
All apartments were equipped with running water and stove heating and had their own entrance, a stable and garden land. This was extremely important for the miners, who were mainly recruited from rural areas of Eastern Europe, to integrate them into an urban housing situation.
In the 1970s, the threatened demolition of the colony was prevented by the commitment of a citizens' initiative , most of the settlement was preserved and was then placed under monument protection as an ensemble of industrial culture. Individual buildings are entered as architectural monuments in the monuments list of the city of Dortmund .
Since 2013, the archive for popular music in the Ruhr area has been located in the former welfare building of the Minister Stein colliery, the Evingen Castle at number 2 Nollendorfplatz.
