The Widmann'sche Papiermaschinenfabrik im Leintal in Neckargartach was a machine factory founded by Johann Jakob Widmann. Widmann had built the first continental European paper machine during the onset of industrialization and produced it in a workshop in Heilbronn until 1840, before he acquired the site in the Leine valley and built a new factory there. Remnants of a workshop building are still preserved from the plant, which continued to be used as a paper mill after Widmann's bankruptcy, converted into a pumping station around 1900 and used as such until the 1960s. In the second half of the 1990s, the complex was renovated and supplemented by a historic hammer mill. Today, the property forms the Neckargartach Historical Industrial Park.
