Etymology and history

Kothen is a form of Kotten .

On the Topographia Ducatus Montani by Erich Philipp Ploennies from 1715, the courtyard is marked as z.Kothen . On the topographical survey of the Rhineland from 1824, the place is listed as a. Cierten and inscribed as Kotten on the Prussian first recording from 1843 . Until the middle of the 20th century, it was named Kothen on the measuring table , then the name Zum Kothen .

In the 19th century, Zum Kothen belonged to the Oberdüssel community of the mayor of Wülfrath . From 1816 to 1861 it belonged to the Elberfeld district and from 1861 to the old Mettmann district . Zum Kothen was right on the border between Oberdüssel and the community of Sonnborn , which was renamed Vohwinkel in 1880 .

In 1888, three residents lived in one house in Zum Kothen. The place is called Kothen at that time .

With the municipal reform of 1929, the eastern part of the Oberdüssel district around Zum Kothen was split off from Wülfrath and incorporated into the newly founded city of Wuppertal.

In 1990 the gap in the federal highway 224n between Velbert and Wuppertal was completed on a deep cut past Kohleiche . Parts of zum Kothen had to be removed for the construction of the expressway. After completion, the road was upgraded to the federal highway 535 in 2007.
