The first written mention of the village took place in 1364, when Petřín and Jindřich von Javorek sold the place including the associated forest to Archleb von Stařechovice and Kunštát . This had already owned a share of Jimramov since 1361 when he bought the other part of Jimram von Pernstein in 1365 . At that time he had the rock castle Štarkov, which was demolished in 1356 by Margrave Johann Heinrich together with Tollstein and Rabenstein, rebuilt on the hill south of the village above the Fryšávka valley . The existence of a judge in Javorek has been documented since 1372.
