More about the History of Modautal

The municipality was formed in 1977 by putting together eleven districts during the so-called Gebietsreform. During the time of the Celts the area must have already been inhabited since the so-called "Heuneburg" on a hill in Fischbachtal was a celtic castle where the people and their animals from the region could flee (German: Fluchtburg). To construct such a building, a lot of helping hands must have been living nearby.

In the Middle Ages, the eleven villages of Modautal belonged to different knight's families: The family of Rodenstein, the family from Frankenstein, the one from Mosbach, the family of Wallbrunn as well as Stumpf von Asbach and Kalb von Reinheim just to name a few. The oldest available documents date back to 1651 and are the so-called "Haingerichtsb├╝cher" (written rules of the peasants in Brandau).

During the revolution in 1848 and due to failure of crops, huge parts of the inhabitants of the villages emigrated to North America.
