The place Kleinkmehlen is probably older than the neighboring Großkmehlen, which was founded from Kleinkmehlen. In 1391 there was evidence of a knight's seat in Großkmehlen. Von Köckritz is named as the first owner of the two places in 1392 . The Lords of Köckritz remained the owners of the place until the middle of the 15th century. Small flour, like the neighboring towns, later belonged to the Electorate of Hayn . Then it came to the district of Liebenwerda and was transferred to the newly founded district of Senftenberg in 1952. On January 1, 1974, Kleinkmehlen and Frauwalde were incorporated into Großkmehlen.
