In the 19th century, the town center was extended by the construction of the mining village. There were residential buildings for workers. With the construction of the brown coal mine "Centrum" Schenkendorf flourished economically. The up to 66 m high chimneys of the pit "Centrum" were then the landmark Schenkendorfs. With the demolition of the brown coal plants many workers left Schenkendorf, others found work in Wildau. The impact of the site until today, visible through the pit houses and the flooded open pit "Bruch".
