Neckartailfingen was first mentioned in 1090 in the Hirsau codex (Codex Hirsaugiensis) as Tagelvingen. On behalf of the Hirsau abbey the Romanesque Martinskirche was probably completed in the year 1111. The place became 1536 Evangelical together with the office Nürtingen and received in 1541 the first village school of the former district Nürtingen. In the Thirty Years' War Neckartailfingen was destroyed after the Battle of Nördlingen (1634) by the infamous dragoons of colonel Walter Butler of Roscrea. Only after a few years the fugitive inhabitants returned and re-built their village slowly again.
