Location of Neuhof in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania
Geography and traffic
Neuhof is located 19 kilometers northeast of the city of Grimmen , 9 kilometers south of Stralsund and 23 kilometers northwest of Greifswald . To the west runs the former federal highway 96 , the current federal highway 105 , next to it the four-lane highway B 96. Since 1863, the Greifswald – Stralsund railway has been running further west of the village .
In the stream valley to the east of the village, peat was extracted and further north there were several clay pits that supplied the material for the brickworks. A number of peat cuttings had also been made in the depression in front of the castle wall.
In contrast, Neuhof was not listed in the Pomeranian documents until the mid-14th century. Even the Swedish registration cards from 1696 do not know the place, although a building is shown in its place, but it was considered part (dismantling) of Brandshagen.
The place name only appears in the Prussian Urmes Tischblatt (PUM) from 1835. There is a farmstead called "Stralsunder Pachthof" to the south, a larger courtyard to the north and a living space in between. Further north of the village, at a distance of 850 meters, was the Neuhofer brickworks and at 1200 meters the Neuhofer Fischerkaten on the banks of the Sund.
In 1871 Neuhof had 9 houses with 18 households and 134 inhabitants, in 1867 there were only 132. All were members of the Protestant denomination.
The measuring table sheet (MTB) from 1880 shows a large estate with a park to the east and an elongated row of ridges south of the estate. The aforementioned leasehold has disappeared. The northern brickworks and the fisherman's house have also been cleared, or both facilities have been relocated. The brickworks were built large and compact on the northern bank of the Strelasund, and the fisherman's cottage was also rebuilt between the new brickworks and the castle wall. In addition, a road was built from the estate to the bank of the Sund, which was particularly important for the brickworks.
Amazingly, nothing changed until after 1920.
After the Second World War and the land reform in the Soviet occupation zone , the structure of the village was changed. The manor house and park will be preserved, all farm buildings have been cleared. In the village, in the direction of Middelhagen and also in the direction of the brickworks, new farms were built . The fisherman's house disappeared, but the brickworks continued to operate until the 1960s. Then the central holiday camp of the then Grimmen district was located there. Parts of the brickworks were cleared. The area around the brickworks is criss-crossed by clay and loam pits.
The mainland exit of the Strelasund overhead line crossing of the 110 kV power line to the island of Rügen has been built at the brick factory .
After 1990 a large and a small marina were built on the former brickworks. The brick buildings became service facilities and storage buildings for winter storage of boats. A new residential area was built in front of the brickworks.
Neuhof belonged to the municipality of Brandshagen . This merged on June 7, 2009 with the communities Behnkendorf , Horst , Kirchdorf , Miltzow , Reinberg and Wilmshagen to form the new community Sundhagen.
