Half-timbered house in Stettbach

Stettbach is a village in the Seeheim-Jugenheim community in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district in southern Hesse , which administratively belongs to the Ober-Beerbach district.


Stettbach is surrounded by forest in the Bergstrasse-Odenwald Nature Park on the Bergstrasse in the Odenwald and is traversed by the Stettbach , which leads in a westerly direction down the valley to Jugenheim , where it joins the Quaddelbach to the Landbach . The settlement is part of the district Ober-Beerbach.


In 1420 at the latest, Stettbach was recorded as Stedebach , as a Hademar zu Laber and his wife Walpurg, born Schenk zu Erbach , half of the village with half of all interest and validity was sold to Count Palatine Ludwig the Bearded . In the same year, Schenk Konrad von Erbach took over the contract as buyer. In 1617 a Junker Schrautenbach had four hubs in town. In 1662 the von Frankenstein brothers sell the towns of Allertshofen , Schmal-Beerbach and Stettbach, not as a fief , but as their property and accessories for Frankenstein Castle to the Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt .

Stettbach already belonged to the district of Ober-Beerbach in the late Middle Ages (1699) . At that time there were two places, namely in the western valley the village of Niederstettbach and further upstream Oberstettbach , today's Stettbach. In 1791 there were 85 and 1806 there were 35 inhabitants in 16 houses and it was co-administered by the mayor in Ober-Beerbach.

The statistical-topographical-historical description of the Grand Duchy of Hesse reports on Stettbach in 1829:

»Stettbach (L. Bez. Bensheim) Lutheran Filialdorf; is located 3 St. von Bensheim, and has 22 houses and 146 inhabitants, except for 2 reform. are Lutheran. The place was bought by the Lords of Frankenstein in 1662 in Hesse. "

In 1854 it was still named as a branch village , but from 1871 the place has been consistently designated as a residential area (settlement) of Ober-Beerbach. When census 2011 141 inhabitants were counted.
