Das Baeren- oder Storchenbrünnlein wurde erstmals
1820 schriftlich erwähnt.
Der Grund, auf dem es sich ursprünglich befand, gehörte einer Familie namens Baer.
Der damalige Standort lag an den "Oberen Dorfwiesen" in der Nähe der Volkach.

Das reiche Nahrungsangebot dieser Wiesen lockte
Störche um den Standort des Brünnleins an.

Auf Dorfansichtskarten von 1920 ist noch ein
Storchennest auf dem Rathausdach erkennbar.

Seit dieser Zeit hat sich der Name des Baerenbrünnleins im Volksmund zum Storchenbrünnlein umgewandelt.

Im Zuge der Flurbereinigung 1935 - 1948 wurde es
eingeebnet und verschwand.

Nur die zwei oberen geteilten Sandsteinhälften der
Einfassung erhielten sich, konnten geborgen und aufbewahrt werden.

Dank einer Initiative des Historischen Arbeitskreises
und der Unterstützung der Gemeinde Kolitzheim
konnte das Storchenbrünnlein 1993 hier an seinem
neuen Standort wieder aufgebaut werden. -

(English translation:)

The Baer- or Little Stork Spring was first mentioned in writing in 1820, with the origins of its name due to its ownership



by the Baer family. Its former location was on the "Upper Village Meadows" near the Volkach; the rich food supply of these meadows attracted storks to the area. On village postcards from 1920, a stork's nest on the town hall roof is recognizable.
Since then, the name of Little Baer Spring has been popularly converted to Little Stork Spring.
In the course of the land consolidation of 1935-1948, it was leveled and disappeared. Only the two upper sandstone split halves of the spring enclosure were preserved and stored. Thanks to an initiative of the Historical Working Group and the support of the municipality of Kolitzheim, the Little Stork Spring was rebuilt in 1993 at its new location. (Marker Number 3i.)
