The old Allendorf was a poor village with half-timbered houses. Before World War II, farming provided a living for nearly half of its 1,500 inhabitants, many of them, however, having to seek other sources of income, such as selling pottery and chinaware. Others became day laborers, bricklayers or musicians.
