Half-timbered chapel from 1748

The area around the place was already populated in the Stone Age, which is proven by some weapons finds. In 1293 Delliehausen was mentioned for the first time in a document in which Ludolf V. von Dassel donated his property in Deligehusen to the Steina monastery. An earlier mention of a place Daillanhus in the Vita Meinwerci cannot be safely assigned to today's place Delliehausen. Delliehausen part of the basic rule of the monastery Steina , but went on in 1366 to the Dukes of Braunschweig, a grand here Vorwerk built with extensive land holdings. Delliehausen was mainly a forest worker - and charcoal burner village , which a museum-operated charcoal kiln still bears witness to and what is reflected in the coat of arms .

In 1585 41 families, 3 farm workers, 21 kötner and 7 housebuilders lived in "Dellinghusen". According to the topographical survey of the Electorate of Hanover in 1764/86, the place has around 35 households. The houses were on both sides of the Rehbach. The Vorwerk was dissolved around 1800. From today's district of Haje (opened for settlement in 1810) only the forester's house was recorded. The so-called "Neustadt" was not built until a hundred years later around 1900 south of the old village on the road to Volpriehausen.

From 1885 to 1911, lignite was mined near the site in open-cast mining to a depth of around 50 meters. Today's mountain lake emerged from this open-cast mine . Since March 1, 1974, the previously independent community has been part of the then newly founded community of Uslar.



In Delliehausen there are over 60 guest beds in a hotel, a guest house and five holiday apartments. There is a campsite by the mountain lake above Delliehausen on the Haje.
