The area was originally part of Phu Khiao district. It became a separate district on August 13, 1959.
The name of the district comes from the small river which flows behind the district office. Along the river bank many Ta Khro trees (Schleichera oleosa Merr.) grow. The people thus named the small river Kaeng Khro (Kaeng แก่ง or แก้ง means small river).
Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Phu Khiao and Ban Thaen of Chaiyaphum Province, Mancha Khiri and Khok Pho Chai of Khon Kaen Province, and Khon Sawan, Mueang Chaiyaphum and Kaset Sombun of Chaiyaphum again.
