Location of Laumühlen in Hechthausen
Laumühlen and Ostebogen
The name Laumühlen refers to a mill in a river valley (Middle Low German: Lewe). In old writings the place is also called Lewenmühlen. The watermill was located next to the Laumühlen estate on the stream that comes from the lowland between Lamstedt and Laumühlen and, after the mill was driven, flowed into the Oste. In order to have enough water for the operation of the mill, the brook was dammed up regularly, which led to extensive flooding in the lowlands.
On July 1, 1972, Laumühlen was incorporated into the municipality of Hechthausen.
