From the Prussian new admission in 1892, the place is regularly recorded on the measurement table as Georghausen .

The Georghausen mill

The Georghausen mill, also called Ölsiefenermühle , was a grain , bone , oil and saw mill on the Sülz and was part of the Georghausen estate. The address book from 1834 names a Th. Von Fürstenberg as a fruit, oil mill and estate owner . A short-term operation of a bone pounder is documented from 1869, the sawmill was in operation from 1894 parallel to the painting operation.

In the mill building, which is still in good condition, there are still technical facilities such as a grinding gear with transverse gearbox and a Francis turbine installed later . Millstones in the garden area and remains of the underground ditch also bear witness to the time when the mill was used .



On the Cologne-Mülheim-Lindlar railway line, the section from Immekeppel to Lindlar was released in 1912 . At this time, the trains continued to Lindlar without stopping in Georghausen. During the Second World War , refugees came from Cologne who tried to find a stop in their new home. This led to a stopping point being set up in Georghausen in 1943 , which remained until the line was closed. The railroad crossed the street in front of the half-timbered houses, and tickets could be bought in the mill.
