|Location of the local community Isselbach in the Rhein-Lahn district|
The local community of Isselbach is part of the Nassau nature park in the Westerwald and the Esterau . The Gelbach flows through Isselbach , the municipal area is traversed by the Isselbach stream of the same name . The local community is nine kilometers west of Diez , eleven kilometers west of Limburg an der Lahn and six kilometers southeast of Montabaur .
A Vogtei Isselbach was mentioned in 1355. The name Isselbach goes back to the local noble family von Usselbach.
To the north-east of today's Isselbach was Oberisselbach , which fell desolately as a result of destruction in the Thirty Years' War and there is evidence that it still existed around 1573. Today's Isselbach goes back to the former village of Unterisselbach .
In 1643 Isselbach came under the control of Esten (today Holzappel ) through a purchase by Count Peter Melander von Holzappel , which in 1656 became the County of Holzappel-Schaumburg . Through this change of rule, the population of Isselbach became Protestant . Temporarily occupied by the French in 1795, from 1806 the place was part of the Duchy of Nassau , which was annexed by Prussia in 1866 . Since 1946 the place has been part of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate .
Evidently since 1718 there was a school in Isselbach. In 1824 a new school building was built in the Nassau classical style, which was taught until 1969. The localities of Giershausen and Ruppenrod also belonged to the catchment area of this so-called “New Elementary School ” . The building is now a listed building. Isselbach has been part of the catchment area of the Esterauschule primary and secondary school in Holzappel since 1969.
Isselbach is assigned to the Roman Catholic parish St. Bonifatius in Holzappel and belongs with it to the pastoral area of Diez , which in turn is incorporated into the Limburg district in the Limburg diocese .
In 1843 Isselbach had 192 inhabitants, in 1910 there were 199 inhabitants, in 1933 there were 179 inhabitants and in 1964 there were 196 inhabitants.
Ulrich Jürgens is the local mayor of Isselbach. In the direct election on May 26, 2019, he was re-elected with 69.71% of the vote.
