The Ebermannstadt district of Moggast
The village is one of 17 officially named districts of the town of Ebermannstadt in the south of Upper Franconia . It is located about five and a half kilometers east-southeast of the center of Ebermannstadt and lies at an altitude of .
Documents from the early 14th century prove that the original place name was "Mochcus" or "Mokos". This suggests a derivation from the Slavic personal name "Mokos".
Until the end of the 18th century, Moggast was under the sovereignty of the Bamberg Monastery. The dominant village and community rule in the Franconian region was exercised by the latter's office, Ebermannstadt , as well as the high jurisdiction and the protection of the parish fair . When the Bamberg Monastery was secularized as a result of the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss 1802/03 and annexed by the Electorate Palatinate-Baiern in breach of the Imperial Constitution , Moggast also became part of the New Bavarian territories that were occupied during the Napoleonic land consolidation .
As a result of the administrative reforms carried out in the Kingdom of Bavaria at the beginning of the 19th century , Moggast became an independent rural community with the second municipal edict in 1818, to which the village of Wolkenstein and the wasteland of Thosmühle had also belonged. In the course of the municipal territorial reform carried out in Bavaria in the 1970s , the entire municipality of Moggast was incorporated into Ebermannstadt on July 1, 1976. In 1987 Moggast had 172 inhabitants.
In Moggast there are a total of six architectural monuments, including the rectory belonging to the Catholic parish church of St. Stephan.
