In 454 the Lords of Erffa are said to have built a bower here and around it a village called Nebenhayn, so the legend reports. In 1472 (Saturday after the New Years) Hans von Erffa sold the place with other villages to the knight Dietrich von Hopffgarten for 4000 Fl. (Florin Gulden), and the Fulda monastery entrusted the von Hopffgarten with it in 1474. The place could be reached through two gates in the early Middle Ages. The oak posts of the western gate were found during road construction work near the village community center. You are now in the Gotha Natural History Museum .
Around the middle of the 18th century, half of the town was owned by the Secret War Councilor Adam Friedrich von Capellan , who was in the service of Hesse-Kassel and who was also head of the Hessian High Hospitals and who died in 1779. After his death, the part went to the brothers Georg Volkmar and Longin Gustav von Hausen zu Lützensommern .
The place belonged to the Hopffgarten court in the duchy of Saxe-Gotha , Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg or Saxe-Coburg and Gotha after the acquisition by the Lords of Hopffgarten until the patrimonial courts were abolished in the mid-19th century . In 1920 he came to the state of Thuringia .
On January 1, 1997, Ebenheim became a member of the Hörsel administrative association founded in 1994 . By order of the Thuringian State Parliament on 16 November 2011, the administrative community Hörsel was dissolved on December 1, 2011, through a voluntary merger of ten previously independent municipalities Aspach , Ebenheim, Fröttstädt , Hörselgau , Laucha , Mechterstädt , Metebach , Teutleben , Trügleben and Weingarten the Rural community of Hörsel will be newly formed.

Culture and sights
The church from 1601 is the center of the place. Since 2017 it has been called “St. Maria “(also called Marienkirche). During the renovation of the tower roof and the tower ball , a letter from 1766 was found in 1947, in which it is mentioned that in 1663 the church tower was "topped and repaired". The ringing order shows that the bells have been ringing since 1472. A new roofing of the tower was completed in 1998, so that on Ascension Day 2000 a button festival could be celebrated. The parish belongs to the parish of Metebach , which also includes the parishes of Neufrankenroda, Weingarten and Aspach.
The social life of the village is essentially shaped by these associations: fire brigade association, small animal breeding association, carnival association, fair society, church choir and sports association.
