Alte Propstei Kruft

A document from 1112 confirms that Heinrich II, Count of Laach and Count Palatine of the Rhine Franconia, donated the village of Kruft to the Benedictine monastery Maria Laach in 1093.

For centuries, the citizens of Krufter lived as serfs of the Laacher Abbey.
In 1719 the provost's office with an integrated chapel was consecrated. The baroque building served as an administration building.
In 1794 the Propsteig building was looted by the French.
Between 1826 and 1893, parts of the building were used as a school.
In the years that followed, the provost's office, in addition to being used as a rectory, also offered rooms for events.
The provost's office has been vacant since the new rectory was moved into in 1962.

You can watch an exciting film about the rescue of the old provost house here:
