Böhla was first mentioned in a document in 1300 as Boile . The place name is interpreted as "settlement with many plants" or "settlement of a bojl" . Other forms of the place name were in the course of time, according to the Digital Historical Directory of Saxony (HOV) of the Institute for Saxon History and Folklore (ISGV) : Boyle (1378), Bowle (1406), Boͤle (1462), Bole (1540), Bohle (1551), Boͤhla and finally Böhla in 1875.

Böhla train station around 1920

From 1872, the newly founded Berlin-Dresden Railway Company established a connection between Dresden and Berlin via Elsterwerda and Großenhain . This Berlin-Dresden railway , which opened on June 17, 1875 , also received a train station about one kilometer east of the village of Böhla. A small railway settlement developed around the Böhla train station , which became an independent district.

Immediately after reunification, plans began to expand the Berlin – Dresden railway line for long-distance traffic. These plans also provided that the section between the cities of Großenhain and Radebeul would no longer be used by regional traffic. In the future, long-distance and high-speed freight traffic should be bundled here. When the expansion work on the line began in 2002, the Böhla station was finally closed to passenger traffic.

On January 1, 1950, the previously independent municipalities of Böhla with its district Böhla Bahnhof and Geißlitz were incorporated into the neighboring municipality of Baßlitz. Since January 1, 1999, Baßlitz has been part of the Priestewitz community . Böhla Bahnhof is nowadays also run as a district of Priestewitz in addition to the former main town of Böhla .

Several historical monuments and buildings are recorded in the local list of monuments.
