Geography[edit]

Neighbouring municipalities[edit]

These are: Hödingen, Hörsingen, Bartensleben, Schwanefeld, Walbeck and Weferlingen.

History[edit]

The oldest mention of "Haskenroth" is in a confirmation document of the pope Hadrian IV for Mariental Abbey in 1158. Because the Eschenroder church dates from Hildegrim of Châlons († 827), traditionally the first bishop of the diocese of Halberstadt and said to have founded 35 parish churches, it is presumed clearly older than Eschenrode itself. The church became in the middle of the 11th century the archdeacons' church. The Halberstädter bishops beside the aristocratic own churches bishop subordinated directly Kirchenbezirke created. The church district of Eschenrode enclosed from Bartensleben to Grafhorst 22 churches. 1224 this was transferred Archdeacon Eschenrode of the Probstei Walbeck and lost to meaning.

Population[edit]

The number of residential buildings (54), has changed only slightly since 1842.
