Originally only the area in which the deserted village of Langenrieth is located was called the Golden Aue . This is why the Aumühle was formerly known as the Güldene Aumühle . The eponymous mill was an inheritance. It had a privileged place of jurisdiction and the right to compulsory meals over the villages of Görsbach and Auleben as well as several other justices. In 1822 nine people lived in the mill. Next to the Aumühle was the Ackergütchen or Vorwerk , which, as a single estate with its five residents, was also parish to Görsbach and, like the Aumühle, had belonged to the Prussian district of Sangerhausen in the Merseburg administrative district since 1816 . On the railway line between Aumühle and Berga-Kelbra , the fully occupied express train D 190 Leipzig – Cologne was attacked by American fighter bombers on February 21, 1945 . After the locomotive's boiler, the cars were shot at, 40 people were killed instantly.
