HistoryEdit

Mühlhausen im Täle was first mentioned in 812. In the 12th century, it became a possession of the County of Helfenstein, who ruled the area until it was mediatized to the Kingdom of Württemberg in 1806. Mühlhausen was first placed under the jurisdiction of Wiesensteig but in 1809 was assigned to Oberamt Geislingen [de]. In 1938, the town was assigned to the district of Göppingen. Mühlhausen grew extensively after World War II. Its municipal name was changed from Mühlhausen to Mühlhausen im Täle in 1959.[2]
