|Location of the local community Eschbach in the Rhein-Lahn district|
Eschbach is located in the western Hintertaunus , on the western edge of the Blauer Ländchen in the Rhein-Lahn district, about 8 km west of Nastätten and 6 km east of the Rhine between the two state roads L 333 and L 334.
Eschbach had been part of the “Vierherrischen” since the 14th century, was added to the Reichenberg office after the second Nastatter trial in 1755 , and remained Hessian until 1806. Temporarily occupied by French troops (as "pays reservé"), the place came in 1816 to the Duchy of Nassau . Since 1866 the place belonged to the Prussian province Hessen-Nassau and since 1946 part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate. In 1972 Eschbach was affiliated to the Nastaetten association.
Since 1563 Eschbach was ecclesiastically as a branch of the Protestant parish Weyer . Since 2003 the place belongs to the parish of Gemmerich.
Eschbach was captured by the US 346th Infantry Regiment at around 8:00 a.m. on March 27, 1945.

coat of arms
Blazon : “In blue and red divided by a curved golden cap ; in front three golden ears of corn, by sheaves, in the back golden hammers and mallets diagonally crossed, below a golden columned hall ( portico ). ”The heraldically incorrect official blazon reads:“ Split by a looped golden point, covered with a looped red half point, three in a blue field in front Ears of corn, hammer and mallet crossed at the back, a portico in gold below. "
The coat of arms was approved on July 30, 2003 by the district administration in Bad Ems . The coat of arms does not comply with the heraldic rules, so the symbol used by the municipality can only be described as commercial graphics or a logo . The Göpel symbolizes the rivers Reichelsteinerbach and Schafbach that flow together in Eschbach. The ears of grain stand for agriculture and the fertile soil, mallets and irons are symbols of earlier mining. The portico stands for the property of a Roman legionnaire, which was mentioned in a scientific publication around 1900 by the well-known historian Robert Bodewig . The colors stand for the former rulers, the Counts of Nassau and Katzenelnbogen .
Today the community is hardly influenced by agriculture. Only one full-time business and one part-time business are still active in the community. Most of the land is cultivated by farmers outside the municipality. There are also three craft businesses and a hotel in the community. Most of the citizens of Eschbach work in industrial and service companies in the Nastätten, Koblenz and Rhine-Main area.
