Josefova Hut lies about 2 km north from village Pavlov-ice in the valley of the river Mže.
In the 30. years of the 19th. century the mining of iron ore was started by owner of valley count Jan Václav Nostitz – Rieneck. In the year 1838 on the border of cadastre of the Pavlovice he begun the production in ironwork and named it after the founder Josef von Nostitz – Rieneck /1764-1849/ – JOSEFOVA HUT /Josefihütte/. In the year 1840 the iron ore celaning fabric was in set up in Josefova Hut. In 1843 the whole area burned down. During the following year 1844 a prussian nobleman Dietrich von Lindheim bought the whole area for 300,000 florentians and turned it into a large steel factory which became the first in the Czezh republic which supplied the track rails for the first railways lines. Already in 1845 he employed the operation of around 500 workers and later over 1000. From the year 1871 was Ironwork where were made primarily the railroad tracks linked to the recently completed line Plzeň – Cheb. In 1880 Joseph’s Hut turned into Prague’s Ironwork company and the operation was modified for the production of zinc sheet. The energy of the river water was replaced in that time by steam and electrical energy. In 1890 J.H. was sold the knight Škoda, founder of Pilsen’s Skoda Josef Halbmayer – hotel owner in Mariánské Láznĕ and his brother Max Halbmayer the owner of the mill in Pilsen. These owners have introduced here the production of cellulose /sulphite pulp/ on new machines. There were empoyed 250 workers for which was built the whole working colony. The end of the 90. years due to financial crisis was the production of cellulose stopped and factory was closed. The beginning of the 20th. century have gone the area of Pavlovice with its surroundings back to agricultural land which were from 13. century. Fame and golden age of all those businesses lasted for less than 100 years and people from there had to move away to find their working opportunity. After 1945 the displacement of the German population from a wide area had made situation in area just more complex. The new settlement was not very succesful and this has led to the disappearance of homan settlements in the vast western areas of the former district Tachov where Pavlovice geographically belongs.
