21 Small property from Brandstätt
House name "Wagner"
Presentation time: 2nd half of 19th century
This property had very little land, so its inhabitants were always reliant on supplementary income, as was the case for many farmers. At times, they generated this income as wainwrights. A wainwright’s workshop was set up in the former stable when the building was taken on by the Open Air Museum. Regular demonstrations now take place here to give visitors greater insight into this craft, which is seldom to be found today.
