Learn more about our history, our goals and the people behind the club.
The Mehlem House
We are a "citizens' initiative" of 350 friends and supporters for the preservation of the cultural heritage in the Bonn-Beuel district.
Founded in 1975 under the name Verein Haus Mehlem e.V., our activities began with the rescue of the baroque patrician house Mehlem in Beuel, which was threatened with demolition.
This was followed by the rescue of the dilapidated half-timbered house in Vilich, which was the residence and official residence of Leonhard Stroof, the first mayor of Bonn on the right bank of the Rhine. In 2009, the association took over its management and sponsorship.
Since then, our association has been involved in a variety of ways in all areas of the city district of Beuel.
The Monument and History Society Bonn-Rechtsrheinisch has the following goals
- Protection and preservation of historical monuments
- Research and communication of history
- Preservation of the historic fabric of the place and the landscape
