The place was first settled between 1539 and 1557 as the first settlement of the Erlitztales. The first noted mention of the village was in 1557.
In September 1793, the church, St. Mary Magdalene, in the center of the village was burned to the ground after being struck by lightning. On August 4, 1906, the church built to replace the original was also destroyed by lightning. It was again rebuilt using funds donated by Oskar Parish baron von Senftenberg.
The village's elementary school was built in 1892.
