More about the History of Eltmann

Founded circa the year 741 during a period of expansion of civil administration and military fortifications in the Franconian region, Eltmann is first mentioned in 8th Century historical records as "Altimoin" or "Eltimoin", interpreted as "on the upper Main", or perhaps more appropriately as "by the old Main", perhaps denoting its location on a side channel of the Main river. Eltmann was granted rights as a town in 1335 during the reign of Holy Roman Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian. The first use of the spelling "Eltmann" appears in records from 1456, but the spelling was not finally standardized until the 17th Century.

Although the town proper was largely spared any destruction during World War Two, a nearby ball bearing plant was attacked by American heavy bombers of the 92nd Bomb Group (H) on July 21, 1944 and severely damaged. Eltmann celebrated its 650th anniversary in 1985.
