During this time, the detachment from feudal rule took place.
The "Bellwalderberg" joined together to form a farmer's guild with the aim of buying their way out of the existing taxes. From this developed the community, the citizenship, which laid down the citizen statutes in writing in 1555. As the actual village constitution, these statutes contained provisions and regulations on the recognition and acquisition of civil rights and they regulated economic life and land use.
Agriculture with the limited land resources was not able to feed everyone, so that part of the population was forced to emigrate. Bereuts in the 19th century as a mercenary in foreign military service and after the ban on mercenary service in 1859 as a colonist in South America or as a milker in Prussia and California.
After the First World War, people migrated to the communities in the main valley or to other cantons.
