In 1889, the Drelsdorf district was formed from the Drelsdorf parish . This consisted of the three villages Ahrenshöft, Bohmstedt and Drelsdorf. In 1934 the parish land community was dissolved and the village communities formed independent rural communities.
In 1948 the district was dissolved and the three communities formed the Bohmstedt office. With the formation of the district of North Friesland, the office was dissolved in 1970 and the municipalities formed the office of Bredstedt-Land with the municipalities of the offices of Breklum and Joldelund .
