Design and history
The peasant stone consists of a flat sandstone slab and was used in the past as a place for farmers' meetings in which village matters were decided and jurisdiction took place. The master builder constitution has been documented for Behnsdorf since the 16th century. The middle of the 16th century is often given for the stone itself, although an exact date is not possible. The last meeting took place in the early 19th century.
There were two peasant stones for Behnsdorf. In 2005, a peasant stone was described as being embedded in the ground and partly built over. Today (as of 2019) the listed stone is free and slightly raised. There is an explanatory board next to the stone.
The stone is considered to be of local and legal significance. The name of the farm road goes back to the stone.
