The first written mention of the village comes from the 11th century. The name of the village is derived from the name of the boxwood plant (Buxum in Latin). Originally the municipality belonged to the province of L'Aquila , it became the new municipality of the province of Pescara in 1927 . Since 1700 there have been several potteries in the municipality that focus on the art of ceramics. The presence of clay along the Tirino River allows the creation of numerous works of art. In 2011, the largest illegal toxic waste dump in Europe was discovered in Bussi sul Tirino.
