More about the History of Obertshausen

In 865, Obertshausen had its first documentary mention under the name Oberdueshuson in a paper from the Benedictine monastery at Seligenstadt as one of the monastery’s landholdings. In 1069, Heinrich IV donated to Saint Jacob’s Monastery in Mainz some newly cleared land in the Wildbann Dreieich (a royal hunting forest). The land lay near the village of Hyson in the Maingau. At this time, the Lords of Hagenhausen-Eppstein exercised lordly rights (Hoheitsrechte) in Obertshausen and Hausen. In Obertshausen stood a moated castle shaped like a defensive tower, called the Burgk im Hayn (or Burg im Hayn in modern German spelling). The Lords of Hausen, a sideline of those of Hagenhausen, once had holdings here.

In the Middle Ages, feudal lords changed very often. The Lords of Eppstein, Ullrich von Hanau, Archbishop Conrad III of Mainz and Count Philipp of Schönborn were some of the land’s owners. In 1425, Hausen and Obertshausen, as part of the Amt of Steinheim, was sold by the Lords of Eppstein to Electoral Mainz. The Thirty Years' War and the Plague in 1636 took a heavy toll on the population.
