    "The smelting man"Not just a bronze sculpture, but a work of art with history.1953, the Hörder Neumarkt was embellished by a new fountain.
    At its edge, on a pedestal, stood a steel cooker made of bronze
    "The Hüttenmann", created by the Dortmunder Sculptor Friedel Dornberg.
    Six years later, he suddenly disappeared from the marketplace. The Hörder citizens spoke of a night and fog action because they were not informed in advance. The hut man was simply "transferred" to the Dortmund Central Station to greet the incoming visitors to the Federal Garden Show. Later he had his place in the Westfalenpark for a few years, overlooking the blast furnaces. It is thanks to the local historian Willi Garth that he was able to return to his old homeland in 2009. About 300 m as the crow flies from the former location on Hörder Neumarkt, he now "guards" the Phoenix West area as a typical figure of a bygone era.
