Recklinghausen country - Recklinghausen-Land
The municipality of Recklinghausen-Land , also known as the parish Recklinghausen in the 19th century , was a municipality in the Recklinghausen district in the Prussian province of Westphalia until 1926 .  It included parts of today's cities Herten , Marl , Oer-Erkenschwick and Recklinghausen .
The Recklinghausen-Land community consisted of two spatially separate parts. The larger part of the area stretched west and north of the city of Recklinghausen and included the farmers Bockholt , Disteln (with Backum ), Ebbelich, Hochlar , Hochlarmark , Langenbochum , Lenkerbeck , Löntrop (with Hüls and Korthausen), Scherlebeck , Speckhorn (with Börste) and Stuckenbusch . The smaller part of the area, which extended east of the city of Recklinghausen, consisted of the four farmers Berghausen , Erkenschwick , Essel andRöllinghausen . In 1895 the community had an area of 68.4 km². 
The Recklinghausen-Land community emerged from the old Recklinghausen parish . Since 1844 it belonged to the Recklinghausen office in the Recklinghausen district.  In the second half of the 19th century, several large coal mines emerged in the municipality, which led to a sharp rise in population.
The community was dissolved on April 1, 1926 by the law on the reorganization of communal boundaries in the industrial districts of Rhenish-Westphalia . Berghausen, Bockholt, Börste, Essel, Hochlar, Hochlarmark, Röllinghausen, Speckhorn and Stuckenbusch came to the city of Recklinghausen, Hüls, Lenkerbeck and Löntrop came to the municipality of Marl, Scherlebeck, Disteln, Ebbelich and Langenbochum came to the municipality of Herten and Erkenschwick came to the municipality of Oer- Erkenschwick .
