A part of the plot was not as accepted for municipality Hamm, but the Count Nesselrode. This process continued until 1760, but was a just conclusion without demolition of the house, as it was intended.

The drawings on the situation and district of the house and of a part of the village are therefore obtained.

Today's Alte Vogtei, is the childhood home of Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen, who was born in March 1818 as the sixth of eight children in Hamm. He was the founder of the agriculture union cooperatives, the forefather of today's Raiffeisen Bank. As a socially committed Christian, he created in 1864 the "loan associations-clubs as a means to remedy the distress of the rural population as well as the urban artisans and workers."
