Historical geography

The village of Iselsbach, first mentioned in 1376 and fallen to desolate after 1400, is located in the municipality .


Around the first century AD, a Roman court estate was founded in the Schlössle estate . Kieselbronn was first mentioned in a document on January 6, 1100, when Bishop Johannes I von Speyer donated the village to the Sinsheim monastery. During the time of the tribal duchies, the place belonged to the Duchy of Franconia . In the following centuries the rulers changed several times. In 1504 part of the town came to the Duchy of Württemberg , the other part was subordinate to knight families as fiefs of the Counts of Löwenstein , including since 1563 the Lords of Hirschhorn and, after the Thirty Years War, the Gölers of Ravensburg . During various wars, including after the Battle of Ötisheim in 1692, the community was repeatedly destroyed and looted. From 1806 to 1810 all of Kieselbronn belonged to the Maulbronn Oberamt in the Kingdom of Württemberg . Through the border treaty of 1810 Kieselbronn came to the Grand Duchy of Baden . Since June 25, 1939, the community was assigned to the Pforzheim district . In 1945 the place became part of the American zone of occupation and thus belonged to the newly founded state of Württemberg-Baden , which was incorporated into the current state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952. In 1973 the district reform took place in Baden-Württemberg , when Kieselbronn came to the Enzkreis.
