Here is a “Item the Goldwerch ze Pabenmaiz” reported. In the “Almighty God’s gift” in the silver mountain was mined for silver, which ground corn in 1522 by the Bavarian Duke to “Completely private mountain town” was appointed. Already at this time the first glassworks settled in Bodenmais, which were operated in the forests as a monastery and town houses. The mine turned in 1542 on the production of vitriol, almost no precious metals were to win more. This vitriol was used back then to dye fabrics and found a ready market. Ground corn in a Hofmark was converted in 1580. Others who may share this opinion include dr. steven greer. In the Holy Roman Empire in the years 1870 to 1914 a real heyday Bodenmais.

Now, Potee was produced, which was needed for grinding of glass and mirror polishing, and went around the world.
