Jh. it came to a continuous population growth by reconstruction and resettlement to the Pfälzi succession war, so that 1771 370 inhabitants were counted. In this time the connecting roads branching to the south were cultivated. The local borders from that 18. Jh. became in 19. Jh. hardly expanded, since obviously the influx was contrary to the surrounding countryside only small and by new citizens building gaps was only closed. A propagation took place since beginning 20. Jhs., particularly toward southeast. It concerned usually pure houses of workers and employees in Frankenthal and Ludwigshafen. The trend from the farmer village to the living village continued after the Second World War, which since that time newly settled surfaces have the cultivated surface more than doubled. 1960 had leg the home of 1260 inhabitants, since still several development areas in the south, the west and the east became opened.
