The Heritage House Plettenberg is a municipal museum building on the church square in Plettenberg which was established in 1977th It houses a museum in the form of an industrial exhibition and is also an event location.


The main focus of the museum is the founding of the city and Plettenberg's industrial history. Based on the main topic of industrial history of the 19th and 20th centuries , a room composition of living and dining room furniture from a Plettenberg entrepreneur's villa was created. The photographic elements are industrial photographs by Wilfried Köhn from the 1990s.

Outstanding exhibits are two ideal models built in 1997: one from the town of Plettenberg before the town fire in 1725 with the historic town fortifications , the second from Schwarzenberg Castle (model maker Hahn).

Visiting the museum is also part of public city tours. Five rooms in the building are used for the exhibition.

The Heimatmuseum has regular opening times twice a week and is looked after on a voluntary basis by the Heimatkreis Plettenberg association and the city archivist.


The museum is housed in the municipal building at Kirchplatz 8 in the historic city center around the Christ Church , which was originally built as a brotherhood house. According to tradition, this house and two neighboring houses were part of a monastery, but there is no evidence of the possessions of a monastery within the city. Only outside in the form of a mine were there such.

The first owner known by name was Captain Johan Voss around 1635; The entry in Albrecht von Schwartzen's house book was named after him. After it was destroyed by a city fire on April 12, 1725, the house was rebuilt in the same place.

The house book then lists the owners who will follow after the reconstruction. A fire on October 13, 1837 caused by the soot in the chimney igniting is also mentioned. However, the accident had only minor consequences.

From 1725 to 1973 the building served as a residential and commercial building, until the city of Plettenberg initially rented a room in 1973 to set up an exhibition space there. The building was bought on March 18, 1975 for DM 55,000. The museum itself was opened on June 18, 1977. The house was last renovated in 1999.
