The village community reconstructs the historic pass in Altenhagen

The village community reconstructs the historic pass in Altenhagen

Exactly 219 years later, Zimmermanns-Kunst reassembled five old oak beams. The idea for this came from the village community of Altenhagen II, where at least one original piece from the last demolished hall in Lower Saxony can be preserved in the village.

Highlight: Through the wooden frame at the beginning of the so-called church path, pedestrians can view the former courtyard and pasture. A small stele provides information on the courtyard that was demolished a few years ago, and its history.

Financial resources make implementation possible

The project started four years ago. The building, which is actually a listed building, cannot be preserved for economic reasons. But as the new owners realized the interest and idea from the working group of the Altenhäger Societies, they moved the driveway to it. Soon the right place was found.

With the Schaumburg scene, Messenkamp municipality, and some private sponsors, the funds for implementation were found. Volunteer professionals from the city and the surrounding area participated, such as Rodenberg master carpenter Helmut Weikert and Lauenau master painter Holger Freter.

The driveway was rotated into its new location at the start of the Altenhäger Kirchweg with a winch.

When the nearly 500-kilogram chassis was in place, Andreas Schmidt of Eimbeckhäuser moved with his truck-mounted crane.
Long before hammering the last new wood screws into the connecting holes, which are more than 200 years old, Weckert paid tribute to those involved: “Altenhagen has really erected a monument to himself.”

The local historical aspect of the work is important to the village community

The local historical aspect of the work was more important to the village community. Seven generations worked on the farm since the 17th century, until 1802 the Steinmeier couple commissioned the carpenter Voss to construct the new building. Seven years later, Johann Friedrich Garby, born in Rohrsen, married his daughter Carolina and became the ancestor of the Lauino families of the same name, which today have many branches.

In contrast to similar courtyard buildings as in Messenkamp, ​​whose stands are often richly decorated with columns, flower tendrils, icons or images of animals, the jewelry at Garbe-Hof has always remained simple. This may indicate modesty or poor financial capabilities of the owners.

The first passers-by were amazed at two different numbers of houses on the rails. Puzzle solution: Until 1981 it was number 3 in terms of farm size in the village. Since street names were assigned, the address was “Im Unterdorf 11”. nah
