It was built for Kommerzienrat Friedrich Haux (1860–1929), entrepreneur in the local textile industry, between his factory and a railway line crossing the town on a bridge.
The Haux family lived in the houses until 1954. Afterwards, the new villa was used for their business and rented to various users. From 1978 it was empty. In 1991 a new owner started renovating it. Today the Klaiber-Schlegel tax advisor society owns and uses it. Some rooms are available for cultural events.
In the old villa, there was a pharmacy from 1964 until 1991. Since then it is a pub. The railway is abandoned.
