HistoryEdit

In older records Lachendorf is mentioned under the name of Lachtendorp, meaning village at the river Lachte. In 1538 Ernest I, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg chose it as a proper place for a paper mill, which marks the beginning of settlement and commercial development. In 1845 the paper mill was extended to a factory, creating a remarkable amount of workspace in this agricultural region.[2]
