More about the History of Büchenbeuren

In 1301, Büchenbeuren had its first documentary mention in a document from the comital family Sponheim. Nevertheless, it is believed to be roughly 300 years older than that. Büchenbeuren belonged until the end of the Middle Ages to the landholdings under the lordship of the Counts of Sponheim. In 1437, the village passed to the Margraves of Baden and the Counts Palatine of the Rhine.

In the late 18th century, modernity was slow in coming to Büchenbeuren. In 1783, serfdom was abolished by Margrave Karl Friedrich.In October 1794, French troops occupied Büchenbeuren. The rectory served as a French military hospital. Beginning in 1796, Büchenbeuren, like all lands on the Rhine’s left bank, belonged directly to France, although French administration here only became fully functional in 1798. Büchenbeuren belonged to the newly formed Arrondissement of Simmern in the Department of Rhin-et-Moselle with Simmern as the administrative seat. Kirchberg became the seat of a canton, and Büchenbeuren belonged, along with Altlay, Bärenbach, Belg, Lautzenhausen, Niederweiler and Wahlenau to the Mairie (“Mayoralty”) of Sohren. In 1804, the French introduced the Code civil des Français.

In 1814, French rule in the Hunsrück ended, and Büchenbeuren, along with the rest of the Hunsrück was made part of the Zentralverwaltungsdepartement (“Central Administration Department”) of Mittelrhein on 2 February 1814, and then on 16 June of that same year, part of the Zentralverwaltungsdepartement of Nieder- und Mittelrhein under Johann August Sack, a high Prussian official. At the Congress of Vienna, the Hunsrück was made part of the Grand Duchy of the Lower Rhine, a Prussian province, which in 1822 was merged with the Province of Jülich-Cleves-Berg to form the Rhine Province. Nevertheless, until 1845, Büchenbeuren was still administered under the French municipal constitution. Only in the mid 19th century was the Gemeinde-Ordnung für den Preußischen Staat (“Municipal Order for the Prussian State”) introduced. In 1882, the first telegraph lines reached Büchenbeuren, with telephone coming two years later. Work on the railway, the Hunsrückquerbahn, began in March 1900, with mostly Italian building crews, and on 6 December 1902, service began.

In the First World War, 63 men from Büchenbeuren (out of a total population then of 450) took part. Twelve never came back. Six others ended up in prisoner-of-war camps and four others were wounded. A war memorial was built outside the church in 1926. By 1919, Büchenbeuren was occupied by the war’s victors. At Christmas that same year, electric light shone for the first time in the village. The occupation ended in 1930. On 7 March 1936, after the Nazis had seized power on 30 January 1933, German troops occupied the Rhineland.
