More about the History of Bullay

It is said to be certain that there was a Roman settlement within the limits of what is now Bullay, which had its first documentary mention as Buley infra Cell in 1150. From 1470 to 1550 there was mining in Bullay. Four baronial noble families held the lordship in the village: Zand von Merl, Boos (Boos vacation rentals | Boos travel guide) von Waldeck (Waldeck vacation rentals | Waldeck travel guide), von Metzenhausen and von Kellenbach (later von Ladenberg). Beginning in 1794, Bullay lay under French rule. In 1815 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna. In 1879, the Koblenz–Trier line was opened. Since 1946, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Under the Verwaltungsvereinfachungsgesetz (“Administration Simplification Law”) of 18 July 1970, with effect from 7 November 1970, the municipality was grouped into the Verbandsgemeinde of Zell (Zell vacation rentals | Zell travel guide). In 1993 came the highest ever floods in the region, the “Christmas Flood” (Weihnachtshochwasser), also known as the “Flood of the Century” (Jahrhunderthochwasser).
