About 150 meters from Gödenroth in the direction of Hollnich is the Kleinbergerhof, which consists of two houses and is inhabited by two families. Legally he belongs to Gödenroth.
The place belonged to the rear county of Sponheim until the end of the 18th century . The Boos von Waldeck and the Counts von Katzenelnbogen had income from the place. With the occupation of the Left Bank of the Rhine (1794) by French revolutionary troops , the place became French, in 1815 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna . Since 1946 the place has been part of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate .
The former town hall of Gödenroth was rebuilt in 1974 as the first building in the folklore and open-air museum Roscheider Hof . It is exemplary for the town halls in the Protestant communities of the Hunsrück. Roman-Catholic parishes were subordinate to the Archdiocese of Trier and no parish self-administration was tolerated by this . The ground floor was temporarily used as a poor house for the community. The coach house next door was initially used as a stable for small animals and later to accommodate fire extinguishers .
Local mayor is Gerd Emmel. In the local elections on May 26, 2019, he was confirmed in his office with 92.93% of the votes.
