Administrative history

The Neuss district was formed in 1816 from the area of ​​the cantons Neuss and Dormagen, which were established during the French era . The district was divided into fifteen mayorships , the successors of the Mairien established in the French era . In 1845, the municipal code for the Rhine Province gave all places that had their own households the status of a municipality. Neuss, the only town in the district, has been subject to the Rhenish Town Code since 1856 . In 1870 the Gohr community moved from the mayor's office in Nettesheim to the mayor's office in Nievenheim. Since then, the circle has been structured as follows:
