|Location of the local community of Kludenbach in the Rhein-Hunsrück district|
Prehistoric and early historical burial mounds can be found south of Kludenbach directly on the boundary of Metzenhausen. It was first mentioned in 1173 in a deed of donation from the Springiersbach monastery (Knight Richard von Clodenbach). The Counts of Sponheim had a farm in Kludenbach. There were also tithe rights of the Counts of Sponheim and the Knights of Wildberg. The Ravengiersburg monastery was also wealthy here.
An early desolation in Lampenrode still lives on in the name of Lampertsmühle .
Iron ore was mined east of the B 421 in the 19th century.
Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The place is dominated by the parish hall, which is reminiscent of a village church with its small onion dome and bell. There are very few Evangelical believers in the traditionally Catholic town. Today the Catholics are looked after from the Ravengiersburg monastery .
There used to be two mills near the village, the upper mill, the Lambertsmühle am Bingerbach, was also fed by farmers from Kappel. In a second mill ditch along the slope, water from the Rielser Bach, which only flows below the Binger Bach, was fed to it.
The Kludenbacher Mühle is located below Kludenbach. From here the brook bears the name Brühlbach. Both mills are now used as residential buildings. Bach, mills and former landowners are reflected in the local coat of arms.
The local mayor of Kludenbach is Walter Kuhn. No candidate ran in the local elections on May 26, 2019; he was re-elected by the local council on June 25, 2019.
coat of arms
|Blazon : " Diagonally divided on the left, an eight-spoke golden mill wheel in red above a silver wave bar, at the back sheathed in blue and gold, covered with a curved red-silver alternating."|
|Justification of the coat of arms: The chess of blue and gold indicates the former belonging to the county of Sponheim. The wheel is reminiscent of the two mills that used to be operated in the district, and the wavy bar provides a reference to the basic word -bach in the place name. The crook refers to the Ravengiersburg monastery, which owned seven fiefs in Kludenbach.|
- Horst Gehann , (1928–2007, last lived and died in the Lambertsmühle), conductor, composer, concert organist, harpsichordist and music publisher, his publishing house continues to exist here.
