As part of the formerly independent municipality of Becke, Höcklingsen has been part of the city of Hemer since the municipal reorganization on January 1, 1975 . The settlement is located in the west of the Becke on today's federal highway 7 and thus borders on Niederhemer .
A family of Höcklinghausen , whose ownership goes back to an estate in today's Höcklingsen, can be proven since the middle of the 15th century. Haus Höcklingsen had been owned by the Brabeck family since around 1700, and later it belonged to the Löbbecke family . In times of industrialization, this also had one of the first machine-operated paper mills in Prussia built to replace an old paper mill in Höcklingsen.
From 1912 Höcklingsen was the stop and end point of the Hohenlimburg - Iserlohn- Hemer tram line . Because of the parallel rail connection between Iserlohn and Menden , the tram was shut down again 21 years later. The next stop was then in Oese .
