Location of Großebersdorf in the municipality of Harth-Pöllnitz
In the town
The first documentary mention of Großebersdorf took place in 1168–1193. In 1555 the miller von der Bachmühle was listed in the church registers . It was a grinding and sawmill. Bombs destroyed the water wheels in 1945. 1975 came the end of the electrically powered mill on the Floßbach. The location of the place on the federal highway 2 from Schleiz to Gera and on the country road to Hermsdorf indicates the past and present importance of the place. His church St. Michael is definitely worth seeing. Also the surrounding area with the wooded hills Eichert and Birkert and the undulating arable plains striving to the south, interspersed with ponds, made Großebersdorf interesting for those looking for relaxation from the city, especially from Gera. The 200 residents and farmers knew how to use this in the past and also today.
On July 1, 1950, the previously independent communities of Birkhausen and Struth were incorporated.
The Großebersdorf station was on the Niederpöllnitz – Münchenbernsdorf railway line . Passenger traffic was stopped on May 28, 1967. In the meantime, the route is only rarely used by freight trains to the Großebersdorf tank farm.
Until 2006 the artist Werner Hering lived with his family in Großebersdorf. From 1963 on, he also kept the village chronicle, which, due to his diligence and artistic profession (he worked as an art and history teacher in Weimar, among others) is one of the most important testimonies of village life in the GDR and the changes during the time of reunification. After his departure, Günther Kulhanek continued the chronicle.
