The collection of the large local history room offers a comprehensive overview of the history and life in Bergholz in past centuries and the settlement of the Huguenots in 1687.
In 2000, the "Arbeitskreis zur Aufarbeitung der Bergholzer Dorfgeschichte e.V." founded the Heimatstube, which is located in the former German schoolhouse next to the church. The exhibition rooms, which are spread over two floors, each have a different focus. Bergholz was founded as early as 1287 and suffered serious population losses during the Thirty Years' War. In 1687, Huguenots who had fled from France were settled here for the purpose of repopulation and economic development. The settlement of the Huguenots in Bergholz, but also the emigration of Bergholzers to Denmark, the USA and Australia is commemorated in a separate theme room. There is also a reminder of the cultivation of tobacco, which was introduced by the Huguenots after 1687 and was cultivated for centuries. Also on display are numerous utensils from agriculture and private households. Another exhibition room is dedicated to the Bergholz artist Elisabeth Gollme (1928 - 2010) with numerous paintings and drawings. Finally, the second floor is completely dedicated to the GDR period in Bergholz with several small exhibition rooms. If you are interested in visiting, you can contact Mrs. Werth at 039754/21098.
