A buffer-stop in the park at the northern entrance to the town is a reminder of the railway-line which used to run between Freckenhorst, Warendorf and Neubeckum. It bears witness to the growing importance of the town’s industry over and beyond the region at the end of the 19th century.
The Sendker furniture factory, which was founded in 1888 and only closed down at the beginning of the 21st century, employed over 60 people, and attracted wealthy customers from way beyond the borders of Westphalia. The original business premises were pulled down. But the Sendker family home, built in 1931 in bauhaus style, still exists. The cubic construction with 4 white-framed windows and 2 slender pillar struts in the recessed entrance of this listed building are typical features of bauhaus style.
Together with the one-storey baroque villa on the other side of the road, and in combination with the 18th century baroque statue of St Nepomuk, it forms a prestigious entrance to the northern part of Freckenhorst.
