History

In 1234 Heubach was first mentioned in connection with a knight Hainricus de Hôbach. On the Rosenstein mountain is the Rosenstein castle ruins, which was first mentioned in 1282. At the end of the 13th century, Heubach and Rosenstein came into the possession of the count of Oettingen, then from 1358 to the possession of the counts of Württemberg. After the victory of Emperor Charles IV against Württemberg's Count "Eberhard the Greiner" in 1360 Heubach and Rosenstein fell to the Kingdom of Bohemia, however it was transferred back to Württemberg in 1377. In 1413 it was transferred to the Lords of Woellwarth fiefdom. Georg von Woellwarth left Castle Rosenstein in 1524 and built a castle in Heubach. In 1579 Duke Ludwig von Wuerttemberg purchased Heubach and Rosenstein and raised the official Heubach city. The town hall was built in 1581. In the Thirty Years' War, the population fell to 10 persons, but at the endeavor of Württemberg's government it was rapidly rebuilt and resettled. On 25 April 1807 the Oberamt Heubach was merged with the Oberamt Gmünd. With the municipal reform from 1938 Oberamt Gmünd was in the the district (Landkreis) Oberamt Schwäbisch Gmünd. With the district reform of 1973 Heubach is now in the the Ostalbkreis district.
