History
Stadtwald has its roots in agriculture. As 'breadbasket' of the monastery Rellinghausen the present area of the Stadtwald now part of Essen belonged to Rellinghausen until the joined incorporation in the year 1910. It was named then Gemarkung Heide.
The district was named Stadtwald after the incorporation as the city of Essen bought lots of forest in this are to make them available to the citizens as recreational areas.
The majority of the developments in Essen-Stadtwald stems from the 20th century. But many names of the old farms and cottages were preserved in form of street or pub names (for example Leveringstraße, Kellermanns Busch, Kleppes Feld, Gebrandenhof).Picture Copyright: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild:Stadtwaldplatz_Brunnen.JPG
