Until the church is planted

Towards the end of the 14th century who acquired Notthafft of white stone, the village and the castle Krummennaab. The place was previously owned by the Wild von Wildenreuth family (Wellenreuth). In 1564 the manor came to Georg Wispeck von Velburg , from whom Georg von Rochau acquired it in 1571 . The Rochau owned Krummennaab until after the Thirty Years War . In 1668 Wolf Ernst von Lindenfels bought the property on Weidenberg. The medieval castle was probably a low castle surrounded by a moat and was located in the lower village on an island surrounded by the Naab and the Mühlgraben. In 1717 a glass polishing mill was set up in the old castle by Karl Christian von Lindenfels. In the neighborhood there was a grinding mill belonging to the manor, as well as the gardener's and hunter's house. In 1818 the political municipality was established.


It is unclear when the new castle was built in the upper village. The tenant house in the spacious courtyard once bore the coat of arms of Wolf Ernst von Lindenfels († 1699) and his wife Magdalena von Giech . The palace building itself was rebuilt by Karl Christian von Lindenfels after a fire accident in 1705. In 1724/25 the French nobleman Louis Anne de Sainte Marie Eglise acquired the Krummennaab estate and founded a glass foreman. After his death in 1756, the castle changed hands several times until it came to Johann Georg von Grafenstein in 1787, whose descendants owned it until 1856. The last noble owner of Krummennaab, Karl Theodor Freiherr von Künsberg , smashed the estate and also sold the castle buildings to bourgeois hands.

In 1894 a porcelain factory was set up in the old castle, which was acquired in 1939 by the Weiden porcelain manufacturer Wilhelm Seltmann . Little by little, all the buildings in the castle had to give way to the porcelain factory. The castle building itself was demolished in 1966. Today only two coat of arms stones walled into a modern residential building and a baroque fence pillar remind of the former Krummennaab Castle .


In 1939 the previously independent municipality of Burggrub was incorporated. In 1945 or 1946, parts of the dissolved Trautenberg community were added. Thumsenreuth followed on July 1, 1972.
