Large areas of the only district (Gmk.-Nr. 61073), especially in the west, are used for agriculture.

Erzhausen borders in the north on the city of Mörfelden-Walldorf ( Groß-Gerau district ) and the community Egelsbach ( Offenbach district ), in the south-east on the independent city of Darmstadt , and in the south-west on the city of Weiterstadt .

The Faulbruch (historically also: The Faulbruch) is a forest and meadow area ( fauna-flora-habitat ) on the eastern edge of Erzhausen.
Around 900 AD, the place is first mentioned in alternating spellings such as Erardishusen, Erhartzhausen, Ebrichshusen or Erndeshusen. In the oldest document from the Lorsch Codex , the community bears the name Erhartshausen. The place name is not derived from ore , as is often mistakenly assumed , but from the first name Erhart (houses of Erhart).
In the Middle Ages Erzhausen belonged to the Ulners von Dieburg . In 1449 Philipp the Younger von Katzenelnbogen received half of Erzhausen from his father. With the extinction of the Katzenelnbogen house in 1479, this fell to the Landgraviate of Hesse . In 1504, the Landgrave of Hesse acquired the other half of Erzhausen. The Bede but 30 guilders is on to the Ulner of Dieburg. During this time the construction of a chapel (1565), later also popularly known as "Ulner Münster ", was built, from which today's Protestant church was built on the same place. The Thirty Years War and the plague wiped out almost all life from the village. In 1669 there were only 73 inhabitants. In 1771 the Ulner von Dieburg sold all their remaining rights to the Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt ( Ludwig VI. ). At that time things were on the up again, as 559 inhabitants were counted again. At the turn of the century the population was 1244.
The statistical-topographical-historical description of the Grand Duchy of Hesse reports on Erzhausen in 1829:
»Erzhausen (L. Bez. Langen) Lutheran Filialdorf; is 1 St. von Langen and has 75 houses and 559 inhabitants, who are Lutheran except for 9 Catholics, 8 Mennonites and 6 Jews. - The place appears in Lorscher Urkünden under the name Erhardeshusen . Conrad von Dornberg and his wife Jutta owned it as an Allodium , which they transferred to Anselm Ullner von Dieburg. This Jutta ceded the right of redemption in 1264 to her relatives, Philipp and Werner von Falkenstein, but they did not make use of it. The Ullner, who remained in the uninterrupted possession of this place, had given him to Churmainz as a fief. The village came from the Ullners in 1445, half of which was bought by the Counts of Katzenellenbogen; the other half in the Bavarian feud against Hesse. After long arguments, Hesse finally compared itself with the Ullners, who finally renounced all their rights against Hesse in 1662 for a sum of money. This purchase did not come about until 1771, after the Ullner family died out, with the daughters who had left behind and made claims to this village as a fief of women. The church, originally a mother church, was given to the pastor of Wixhausen for administration at the beginning of the 17th century. "
In the period after 1900 there was a steady increase in the number of inhabitants. From 1900 to 1950 and from 1950 to 2014 the population more than doubled.

The first documented census took place in 1629. In that year 29 residents were counted. As until well into the 19th century, only men with civil rights were counted. They were called the "houseguests" , which roughly corresponds to the number of households. The so-called House at SAT quartered or citizens without full rights " sojourners " were not counted.

Economy and Infrastructure
The train in Erzhausen
Since many workers and craftsmen were looking for a home in Erzhausen, but worked in Darmstadt or Frankfurt , a stop was set up on the Main-Neckar Railway (18.6 km) in 1888 . In 1903 today's station building was built. In 1997 the railway line was expanded with the introduction of the RMV . Since then, the S-Bahn lines S 3 have been running from Erzhausen station every half hour to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof or in the Taunus to Bad Soden via Langen and Frankfurt. This is particularly beneficial for commuters , who now make up the majority of the working population.
The travel time to Frankfurt is approx. 25 minutes. The travel time to Darmstadt is approx. 10 minutes.
After the opening of the S-Bahn , the station building was no longer used, as the S-Bahns arrive and depart from their own platform , which was specially built to be barrier-free . In the course of this, the entire forecourt was also renewed. There is now a Park + Ride car park on the station forecourt .
Since the beginning of 2001, the municipality of Erzhausen has renovated the station building that it acquired from Deutsche Bahn . Today the building, the Erzhäuser Bücherbahnhof , houses the community library .
