Kleingörschen is located southeast of Lützen between Leipzig and Weißenfels , as well as between the opencast mining areas of Zwenkau and Profen . The village is surrounded by extensive agricultural land. Großgörschen joins Kleingörschen to the south.
Kleingörschen is a Slavic foundation from around the year 600. The oldest documented mention goes back to 1277 . At that time, the Wettin Margrave Dietrich von Landsberg sold the Eisdorf court seat, including all the associated locations, to the bishop of the Merseburg Monastery Friedrich I von Torgau for 300 silver marks. Among the thirty places in total, Görschen (without subdivision into large and small pigs) is also mentioned. In the period that followed, until 1815 Kleingörschen belonged to the Hochstift-Merseburg office of Lützen , which had been under Electoral Saxon sovereignty since 1561 and belonged to the secondary school principality of Saxony-Merseburg between 1656/57 and 1738 .
In the village there were traditionally the two manors Rother Hof and Carlsburg, which were united in one hand and until 1784 were owned by the noble von Görschen family from the village . The unified manor passed to the von Merkel family in 1784. The allodification of the combined manor took place on March 26, 1840.
In the course of the first district reform in the GDR , Kleingörschen was incorporated into Großgörschen on July 1, 1950 and reclassified into the Weißenfels district . Großgörschen has been part of the new town of Lützen since 2010.
