Schon 1606 berichtet die Gemeinderechnung von der Anschaffung von "acht liedernen Eymern (Ledereimern) uff's Rathaus zu bessern” (Brandschutz).

Der heutige Barockbau entstand 1696/98 mit Dorfschmiede und kleinen Stallungen.

1713 ließ Rudolf Franz Erwein Graf v. Schönborn alle Bürger des Dorfes unter persönlicher Anwesenheit auf sich als ihren Lehnsherren vereidigen.

1714 wurde der Haupteingang umgestaltet.

1822 die Dorfschmiede an den Gänsewasen ausgelagert und 1843/44 an der Südseite eine Sonnenuhr angebracht.

Bis 1962 beherbergten die Räume im Erdgeschoss die kath. Schwesternstation und eine Lehrerwohnung sowie im Obergeschoss eine evangelische Volksschule. Mit der Gebietsreform am 1. Mai 1978 endete die Selbstständigkeit der Gemeinde Zeilitzheim.

Im Obergeschoss befinden sich der große und der kleine Ratssaal, ein Ausstellungsraum und eine Küche mit Esse, die sich im Original erhalten hat und im ersten Weltkrieg zeitweise als Gefängnis diente. Die Gemeinde Kolitzheim renovierte das Gebäude in den Jahren 1992/93.

1994 wurde das historische Rathaus eingeweiht und ist

(English translation:)

As early as 1606, the community records indicate the acquisition of 8 leather buckets for fire protection for the city hall.

The present baroque building was built in 1696-98, and included space for the village smithy and small stables.

In 1713, Rudolf Franz Erwein, the Count von Schönborn, is sworn in as the village feudal lord.

In 1714 the main entrance was redesigned.

In 1822 the village smithy was relocated to the "goose green"; in 1843-44 a sundial is installed on on the south side of the building.

Until 1962, the rooms on the ground floor housed space for Catholic nuns and a teacher's apartment, and on the upper floor there was a Protestant elementary school. With the local governmental reform of May 1, 1978, the independence of the community Zeilitzheim was terminated.

Upstairs are the large and the small council chambers, an exhibition room, and a kitchen with eating space, that has been preserved in original condition and temporarily served as a prison during the First World War. The community of Kolitzheim renovated the building in the 1992-93.
