The first written mention of the village of Brzyezina belonging to the Ronov Castle was in 1365 as the property of Čeněk Krušina von Lichtenburg . After Ronov in the 15th century desolate fell that hit Černohorský of Boskovice the village of domination Nový hrad to. There is evidence of a farm in Březina since the second half of the 15th century, owned by the landed nobleman Jiřík von Březina. In 1604 the Liechtensteiners acquired the village and attached it to the Pozořice rule . The oldest local seal dates from 1635. In 1746, the stately Nový Dvůr sheep farm was laid out southeast of Březina. In the same year, the lordship laid out another farmyard, Nový Dvůr, which was located in the corridors of the desert village of Lhota and was later called Lhotky . The Jägerhaus and Hegerhaus were later built in Lhotky, and in 1842 accommodation for forest workers was added. The Liechtenstein landlords of Březina remained until the middle of the 19th century. On the western outskirts of the village, limestone was quarried on the Vysoká and burned in the Kruhovka lime kiln.

After the abolition of patrimonial Březina formed from 1850 with the one- shift Lhotky a community in the district administration Brno . Lhotky was reassigned to Hostěnice in 1885 .
