Hausen is a community in the Miltenberg district in the Regierungsbezirk of Lower Franconia (Unterfranken) in Bavaria, Germany and a member of the Verwaltungsgemeinschaft (Administrative Community) of Kleinwallstadt.
Hausen lies in the Bavarian Lower Main (Bayerischer Untermain) Region.
The community has only the Gemarkung (traditional rural cadastral area) of Hausen.
The settlements of Oberhausen and Unterhausen, once part of the Archbishopric of Mainz, became in accordance with the 1803 Reichsdeputationshauptschluss part of Prince Primate von Dalberg’s newly formed Principality of Aschaffenburg, with which it passed in 1814 (by this time it had become a department of the Grand Duchy of Frankfurt) to Bavaria. On 25 April 1856 the two formerly self-administering communities were merged to form the single community of Hausen.
Within town limits, 1,385 inhabitants were counted in 1970, 1,682 in 1987 and in 2000 1,965.
The council is made up of 13 council members, counting the mayor, with seats apportioned thus:
- CSU/WG 8 seats
- Hausener Bürgerblock 5 seats
Municipal taxes in 1999 amounted to €674,000 (converted), of which net business taxes amounted to €36,000.
Coat of arms
The community’s arms might be described thus: Sable a sword per bend sinister the point to chief and flammant argent, the whole surmounted by a cross chequy of two Or and gules, in chief dexter a wheel spoked of six of the second, in base sinister an oakleaf per bend sinister acorned of one of the second.
The chequered cross is drawn from the arms once borne by the Counts of Ingelheim, who succeeded the Echter von Mespelbrunn family as feudal lords when the latter died out in 1665. The Wheel of Mainz refers to the Archbishopric of Mainz, which was also once an overlord. The flaming sword is one of Saint Michael’s attributes, and it is to him that the church in Hausen is consecrated. The oakleaf and the acorn stand for Hausen’s geographical location in the Spessart (range).
The arms have been borne since 1988.
