In 775, Framersheim had its first documentary mention when a document from Lorsch Abbey mentioned a vineyard in Framersheim.
The council is made up of 16 council members, who were elected at the municipal election held on 7 June 2009, and the honorary mayor as chairman.
The municipal election held on 7 June 2009 yielded the following results:
- (1945–1946) Johann Beckenbach
- (1989–2004) Frank Zink
- (2004–heute) Ulrich Armbrüster
Coat of arms
The municipality’s arms might be described thus: Sable a kettle-hat argent pierced each side with a cord gules, itself nowed at each end and looped once in base.
The “kettle-hat” (Kesselhut in German) apparently was once typical. It appeared in the village seal as early as 1459. It could be a canting charge for the family Kessler von Sarmsheim who held the local castle in the Middle Ages.
Economy and infrastructure
With local winemaking businesses, business is done by so-called self-marketers, who mostly market their own wares directly to end users.
