Haus Biele is the ancestral home of my branch of the Biele family in Hovestadt, Germany.
Haus Biele was built in the town of Hovestadt by Friedrich Karl Biele (the grand father of Caspar Biele) in 1770 originally for an agricultural business. In 1804, a distillery was established and later a Gasthaus or "guest house". The property passed through the family and remained private property through the 1990's.
After the restaurant was closed
in 1995, the house was bought by the community of
Lippetal. (Hovestadt is
now part of Lippetal) The community used the house to lodge emigrants and asylum
Present day address is : Bahnhofstrasse 15, 59510 Lippetal, Germany
