- The house Dellwig is already mentioned in 1238 in connection with a knight of the name Heremanns de Dalewick (Hermann von Dellwig). After its destruction in the Thirty Years' War, the two-storey mansion was rebuilt between 1658 and 1690. Over time, it has been rebuilt several times, and so various architectural styles are visible in the building. 1727 died the last male descendant of the march knight family de Dalewick. Then the house goes through inheritance and sale by several hands. In the end, it was acquired in 1904 by Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks-AG. - (Wikipedia)
