1457 – The Story of the Drei Kronen Property

Hospitality is our “Bier” (profession) – since 1457

Following the notarized acquisition of Hanns Hilbrant, the story of the Drei Kronen property begins:

Hanns Hilbrant, the tailor, is lawful owner of Memmelsdorf house, barn, and courtyard, including as much as is available for auction and bequeathal. This regards the same state-awarded land located towards the church courtyard that was previously distributed. The gentleman purchased the land with interest from Fritzen Seuerlein, before the state-awarded land was divided and entrusted. Effective Thursday, Three Kings Day (also known as Epiphany), 6 January, 1457
