Carl Mildreich Barth

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carl Mildreich Barth , also modernized Karl Mildreich Barth (* in the 18th century probably in Dresden ; † March 16, 1858 in Dresden), was a German builder .


Born in Dresden , Barth was taken on as a master builder in the service of Count Christian Friedrich zu Stolberg-Wernigerode on July 22nd, 1797 . He moved into an official apartment at Wernigerode Castle . In addition to the supervision of the construction industry and the forest and field measurements within the county of Wernigerode , Barth was also given the supervision of the three manorial fish masters and the fishery. However, he tended to express himself occasionally with a disdainful, scornful tone that was not free from personalities , which caused him to win the disapproval of the ruling Count Christian Friedrich zu Stolberg-Wernigerode as early as 1799. So Barth soon looked around for another employer and left Wernigerode for Christmas 1801. He went back to his home in Saxony. In 1804 he was an agricultural clerk for the Leipzig and Meißnischen districts , in 1807 he had a position as building commissioner (ius). In 1835 he was referred to as the royal Saxon master builder in Dresden.

During his four and a half years working for the Counts of Stolberg , he had not been able to carry out the “designation and recording of all stately buildings and structures” required of him in his service instructions, as the number of Counts' buildings was over 300 at that time. Only a few buildings were built under his direction, such as the pig iron chamber in the Ilsenburger Hütte or the brickworks in Rothesütte . The most important building of his activity in Wernigerode was the Brockenhaus , which was built between 1799 and 1800 on the highest peak in Northern Germany.

His buildings, which were built under him as a master builder in Saxony , also gained importance . He rebuilt the early 17th century press house that burned down on Hoflößnitz in February 1824 after 1834, when the electoral winery was converted into a state winery. In 1843, instead of the old Hoflößnitz kitchen building, he created the so-called Kavaliershaus , executed by Karl Moritz Haenel .

When Barth died in March 1858, he left a daughter and the Barth Foundation for the fund of the deaf-mute institute in Dresden.
