Hasselbach belonged to the late 18th century country wonderfully for Rear County of Sponheim and was last owned by the Duke of Pfalz-Zweibrücken . Within the Kastellaun office , Hasselbach was the capital of an administrative and judicial district called care . The towns of Alterkülz , Hundheim , Michelbach and Neuerkirch (on the other side of the Külzbach) also belonged to the Hasselbach care .
With the occupation of the left bank of the Rhine in 1794 by French revolutionary troops , the place became French , from 1798 to 1814 it belonged to the canton of Kastellaun , which was assigned to the Rhine-Moselle department . At the Congress of Vienna (1815) the region was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia . Under the Prussian administration, Hasselbach was subordinate to the mayor of Kastellaun in the Simmern district from 1816 and belonged to the Rhine Province from 1822 until the end of the Second World War . Since 1946 the place has been part of the then newly formed state of Rhineland-Palatinate and has been part of the Rhein-Hunsrück district since 1969 .
The former town hall of Hasselbach (built: 1750) was dismantled in 1977 because it was unusable and rebuilt in the open-air museum in Bad Sobernheim in 1978/79 . The small hall on the upper floor, the "council hall", was once used for all kinds of occasions - municipal council meetings, other gatherings and festivities. The bakery has been rebuilt on the ground floor . In earlier times, baking was subject to an order in Hasselbach. She determined how the order of those willing to bake was to be determined. By lot it was determined who had to fire the stoves and clean the room.
In 1954, a piece of land was purchased for the new community hall, but construction work could not begin until 1964. On May 4, 1968 the inauguration of the new parish hall took place. Extensive renovations and conversions were carried out in 1987/88.
Hasselbach became known in the years 1983–1989 through the Easter marches of the peace movement against the stationing of cruise missiles , which were to be stationed in the nearby Pydna missile base as part of the NATO double resolution .
