|HOME - GOEHLE INTRODUCTION - Goehles in Herrnsheim (1852-1917) - Cornell|
Jacob Cornell born 1676 in Bechtheim married Marie Hermann in Abenheim in 1707.
Abenheim is located north west of the city of Worms.
There are indications that Abenhiem was occupied in Neolithic times.
The town is mentioned in the Lorsch codex in 774.
The name is derived from the nobleman Wernher Abenheim who ruled the village starting in 1190. In 1395 there was a fortress and castle. The area was under the control of the von Dalberg family from 1390 to 1797. The Dalbergs build a "lowland" castle called Castle Abenheim or Sahberger Court in 1556. It is in private hands today.
The Catholic chapel of St Michael "towers over the town" for over 1000 years. The Baroque Catholic church was consecrated to St. Boniface in 1736.
Wine and sparkling wine are produced in the area.
