Trappitschen house
The building was dismantled in 1989 in the Hunsrück village by museum staff, reconstructed in loving detail in the museum grounds and re-opened in 1998. It is a building two rooms deep, typical for the Vorderhunsrück, and dates to around 1830. During extensive redesign in 1915 the original stunted hip roof, among other things, was removed with the result that the building gained its current characteristic appearance with a pitched roof.

Back gardens from the Hunsr├╝ck
Next to the Molz house there are two back gardens from the houses from Bell (B 4) and Lieg (B 6). They are fenced in on one side by twisted hazel sticks and nailed fir wood on the other, to keep out grazing animals and chickens which roamed freely around the village. Wattle fences had been in use since the Middle Ages and were common up until the late 19th century. Neither nails nor wire were needed in order to make a garden fence like this.

Built in: 1749
Added on to in 1774
Dismantled: 1976
Reconstructed: 1976-78
(Rhine-Hunsrück district)

The Gödenroth parish hall was the first building to be reconstructed in the open air museum. It was first built in 1749 as a single storey shepherd's house for the Hunsrück village of Gödenroth. By 1792 the parish already needed to extend it by one floor to use as the parish hall. It was given a stunted hip roof with a ridge. This is where the bell to summon the parish councillors to meetings was installed. The covered steps leading up to the meeting room were built on the outside on the gable end. This meant anyone spying at the door was clearly visible.
