In 1805 Hausen am Tann, formerly a possession of Austria, became part of the Kingdom of Württemberg, whose government assigned it to Oberamt Balingen. In 1810, it was reassigned to Oberamt Spaichingen and in 1842 to Oberamt Rottweil. In 1938, that district was merged into the new Landkreis Balingen. There was modest development in Hausen after World War II in the 1950s. In 1973, as part of that year's reform of Baden-Württemberg's districts, Balingen's district and by extension Hausen were merged into a new district, Zollernalbkreis. There was some additional development to the north and southwest in the late 1990s.
The municipality (Gemeinde) of Hausen am Tann covers 8.49 square kilometers (3.28 sq mi) of the Zollernalb district of Baden-Württemberg, a state of the Federal Republic of Germany. It is physically located in the western foothills of the Swabian Jura. Elevation above sea level in the municipality ranges from a high of 995 meters (3,264 ft) Normalnull (NN) at the top of the Schafberg to a low of 697 meters (2,287 ft) NN in the valley of the Schlichem.
Coat of armsEdit
Hausen's coat of arms displays two white foothold trap jaws upon a field of blue. It was adapted from the arms of Dietrich Spät, who was lord of the village until his death in 1530. This pattern was awarded by the provisional Württemberg-Hohenzollern government on 13 February 1950. A flag was issued by the Zollernalb district office on 31 March 1982.
