Einöllen was first mentioned in a document as Eynet in 1432 .

In 1768 Einöllen came to the Electoral Palatinate through an exchange of territory and was there subordinate to the Oberamt Lautern .
From 1798 to 1814, when the Palatinate was part of the French Republic (until 1804) and then part of the Napoleonic Empire , the place was incorporated into the canton of Wolfstein . In 1815 Einöllen initially belonged to Austria . After the Congress of Vienna , it was added to Bavaria a year later . From 1818 to 1862 the community continued to belong to the canton of Wolfstein and was part of the Kusel Land Commissioner , which was then converted into a district office.
In 1939 the place was incorporated into the Kusel district. Towards the end of World War II , Einöllen was captured by units of the United States Army on March 19, 1945 . After the war, the municipality within the French occupation zone became part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate. In the course of the first administrative reform in Rhineland-Palatinate , Einöllen became part of the Wolfstein Association in 1972 . The place has belonged to the Lauterecken-Wolfstein community since 2014 .
