Early history

Tamm was mentioned in documents in 1287, 1291 and 1293, which the place owes to the nobility in the person of Anselm and Eberhard von Damme. In 1298, Count Eberhard der Scheerer sold his bailiwick rights to the Bebenhausen monastery . From 1300 the place belonged to the imperial city Grüningen , today Markgröningen , in which the local nobility of Tammer resided for a time. In 1322 Tamm came with Grüningen to the Reichssturmfähnrich Konrad II von Schlüsselberg , who in 1336 was given by Count Ulrich III. was replaced by Württemberg . In 1351, Tamm was donated in full to the Counts of Württemberg . In Württemberg , Tamm belonged to the Grüningen office until it was finally dissolved in 1807.

After the defeat of the Protestant troops in the Battle of Nördlingen (1634), Tamm was destroyed by the imperial troops in the course of the subsequent siege of Hohenasperg fortress and remained almost uninhabited for a long time.

Senior official or district membership since the 19th century

When the new administrative structure was implemented in the Kingdom of Württemberg , which was founded in 1806 , Tamm was assigned to the Oberamt Ludwigsburg in 1807 , which was renamed the Ludwigsburg district in 1934. During the administrative reform during the Nazi era in Württemberg , Tamm came to the new Ludwigsburg district in 1938 .

History since the 19th century

Because of the poor economic situation, at least 200 people emigrated in the 19th century. A gradually increasing prosperity only arose after the railway station on the Württemberg Northern Railway was opened in 1847 by the Württemberg State Railways . In 1906, Tamm joined the electrical power supply and in 1907 got a modern water pipe.

During the Second World War, Allied troops bombed Tamm for the first time on the night of October 12-13, 1941, which destroyed several houses and an agricultural property. Between 1943 and 1944, explosive and incendiary bombs were repeatedly dropped, most of which fell in the open, causing little damage. In April 1945, French soldiers carried out artillery attacks several times over a period of 12 days, in which residents lost their lives and numerous buildings were affected. On the night of the 21st to the 22nd of the same month, French prisoners of war took possession of the town hall for days. The French handed Tamm over to the American occupation forces in July. Since the place became part of the American zone of occupation in 1945 , it belonged to the newly founded state of Württemberg-Baden , which was incorporated into the current state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952.

Due to the admission of several hundred displaced persons, Tamm had a population of 3,905 in 1961. As a result, several new development areas were opened up in the north and east from the 1950s and the housing estate on the Hohenstange from the 1970s.

Population development


Tamm originally received spiritual care from Markgröningen , but had its own pastoral office since 1331, which until the Reformation belonged to the Land Chapter Grüningen in the Archdeaconate of Trinity of the Diocese of Speyer . With the introduction of the Reformation in Württemberg from 1534, Tamm also became Protestant . Even today, the place is predominantly shaped by Protestantism . Only with the influx of displaced persons after the Second World War did a significant number of Roman Catholic residents return who have had their own parish since 1974. The New Apostolic Church is also represented with two congregations, with divine services in one of the congregations being carried out in Italian. There are also the Jehovah's Witnesses .
