“The Little House that "could"”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

The name Elfleins-Hausla originates from it'sprevious owners Kaspar and Elisabeth Elflein.Kaspar had a homebusiness there-he was a blacksmith.He operated it with his son Georg til 1939.Georg was drafted and Kaspar then died.The 1894 born daughter Anna [of Kaspar+Elisabeth] remained single and lived at the house til her death in 1981.The house was very neglected and to be demolished at one point.One resident of Roedelsee in particular fellt a passion for the house and finally got permission to restore it.It was a labour of love,dedication and hours of volunteer-work to bring the little Country-Museum to its present state.And it is not finished yet.A display of origional Blacksmith-tools,Kitchen+Farming equipment can be seen.Each room describes the lifestyle and livingconditions of the past.Private tours can be arranged outside the general opening times wich are weekend afternoons. 09323-89952

“Picturesque outlook”
Reviewed 3 December 2011

The museum is only opened on sunday afternoon, sadly when we visited it was closed... The small-scale estate was called to the last occupant, popularly "elfleinshäusla". It brings its visitors back to their own childhood and the "good old days". The typical Franconian residential- commercial- and winegrower's House was restored with attention to detail to its original truthful State. The heart of the House is a fully equipped forge near the entrance. If one books a guidetour with a group, one can as well book the extra option for a blacksmith, who explains all whilst he forges.
