time the ride master wolf Ernst von Eller had betrayed the city Herford to
Sweden. Over it the Ravensberger was in such a way pleased that they gave him
property Bustedt as property. A turn in the use of the property was introduced
1964, when the property was sold to the
today's municipality Hiddenhausen.
An association, which converted the property to a biology center - the today's
association "biology center Bustedt OWL e.V.", was sixteen years later.
