|Location of the local community Anhausen in the Neuwied district|
The place is on the edge of the Westerwald on the heights of the Neuwied Basin in the Rhine-Westerwald Nature Park . The residential areas Bergmannshof, Forsthaus, Forsthaus Braunsberg, Petershof and Rosenhof belong to Anhausen .
Based on finds of Franconian graves in the immediate vicinity of Anhausen (“Ochsenstück” corridor), it can be assumed that there was a settlement here as early as the 7th century.
The community was mentioned for the first time in an arbitration ruling by the General Chapter of the Premonstratensian Order in Prémontré in 1204. In this document, rights of the Rommersdorf Abbey for “par. hanhusen ", that is for the parish of Anhausen. The presence of a parish suggests that a church and settlement already existed at the time. A few years earlier, Bruno von Isenburg had started building the nearby Braunsberg Castle . Since the Lords of Isenburg-Kobern had the right of patronage (1268) in Anhausen, the church probably goes back to a gift from the Lords of Isenburg.
The name Anhausen developed from "Hanhusen" (also "Hainhusen" in the sense of "Waldhausen") in 1204 via "Aynhusen" (1343) to Anhausen (1529).
Under Count Johann IV von Wied , Anhausen had belonged to the County of Wied since 1344 , the Reformation was introduced in the mid-16th century . This was due to the influence of the Cologne Archbishop Hermann V. von Wied , who was an uncle of Johann. The congregation and the pastor now became Protestant .
As a result of the Confederation of the Rhine , which was formed under Napoleon , the parish of Anhausen became part of the Duchy of Nassau in 1806 and became Prussian in 1815 after the Congress of Vienna .
The development of the population of Anhausen, the values from 1871 to 1987 are based on censuses:
Heinz-Otto Zantop became mayor of Anhausen on July 15, 2019. In the direct election on May 26, 2019, he was elected for five years with a share of the vote of 83.31%. His predecessor in office was Heidelore Momm.

"|
|Justification of the coat of arms: The castle shown is the stylized image of Braunsberg Castle above the Aubach Valley and the Anhausen district. The green surrounding the castle symbolizes the community's abundance of forests. The two red bars in silver are the coat of arms of the Lords of Isenburg , who had old rights in the parish of Anhausen. The four red sloping bars in gold are taken from the coat of arms of the Counts of Wied. The lordship of Braunsberg, identical to the later parish of Anhausen, belonged to the county of Wied from 1344 to 1806 .|
