Dorfmuseum Urbach im "Haus am Hochgericht" The name of the house in Hauptstraße 24 in Urbach is reminiscent of medieval times, because in the 13th century Urbach was a court of law. Historical writings mention "the court under the lime tree below the church". The "Haus am Hochgericht" is located exactly at this point. The residential house with outbuilding was bought by the local community and by the affectionate restoration a piece of jewellery developed, which connects modern architecture with old building fabric. The former residential building houses the community office and a small meeting room, as well as archive rooms for the local associations. The adjoining building houses the village museum with a collection of old agricultural and domestic utensils. A large part of the exhibits was used in the local agricultural small businesses until the post-war period. The machines and equipment "tell" about the hardships with which people used to wrest their harvest from their fields and meadows. Photographs show the machines in action. After all, at the beginning of the 1980s there were still more than ten part-time farms in Urbach, which often cultivated quite small areas.
