During the last few years an EU-project is in progress in the former sawmill community of Marieberg; near the outflow of the √Öngerman River. The purpose of the project is to preserve and protect the physical traces of industrial activities at the place; and bring them to life. The project was created and is carried on by inhabitants of the place; in other words; the preserving activities occurred; and still do; in the life-world of people living at the place. My focus is on the consequences of this preserving work. I use a phenomenological approach to elucidate how people from within their lifeworld; not only struggle to preserve the cultural heritage per se; but struggle to preserve the sense of the place as their own.
