Maroth - History


In 1344, Maroth had its first documentary mention. Maroth was once split into two. Witness to the former division of Maroth, formerly known as Malre, Maillrode, Mairot and Moort, and Hausen, formerly known as Huissen, Isenburgshausen and Trierischhausen, is the two outliers that can still be seen today. The municipal area even now is not fully contiguous, and two exclaves that can be reached only by crossing Marienhausen’s or Dierdorf’s municipal area are to be found outside the community’s main territory. In 1972, in the course of municipal restructuring, the Verbandsgemeinde of Selters was founded, to which Maroth belongs.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    I think that Richard Nixon will go down in history as a true folk hero, who struck a vital blow to the whole diseased concept of the revered image and gave the American virtue of irreverence and skepticism back to the people.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    The history of mankind interests us only as it exhibits a steady gain of truth and right, in the incessant conflict which it records between the material and the moral nature.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Don’t give your opinions about Art and the Purpose of Life. They are of little interest and, anyway, you can’t express them. Don’t analyse yourself. Give the relevant facts and let your readers make their own judgments. Stick to your story. It is not the most important subject in history but it is one about which you are uniquely qualified to speak.
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)
