The place Lužany was first mentioned in 1175. In 1245 Imram z Lužan became the owner of the place, whose descendants ruled until the 14th century. However, the property fell apart due to inheritance divisions. After a few changes of ownership, Lužany came to the Příchovice on Skočice in the 15th century, who had the fortress converted into a Renaissance chateau in 1583. From 1603 Lužany belonged to Skočice. At the time of the berní rula , the village largely belonged to the imperial councilor and captain of the Pilsen region, Karel František Příchovský; the Roupov reign held a small stake. Johann Wilhelm Příchovský sold the manor in 1721 to his brother-in-law Klink von Engelfluss. In the course of the 18th and 19th centuries, the landlords changed frequently, including the Trautmannsdorff , Kinský , Pentenrieder von Adelshausen and Vršovec.

The villages of Skočice, Dlouhá Louka, Zelená Hora, Zelené, as well as parts of Vlčí and Nová Ves belonged to the allodial estate Lužany, created in 1848 .

With the replacement of patrimonial Luschan became an independent community in the same year.

In 1867 Josef Hlávka bought the castle from the Prague manufacturer Franz von Ringhoffer and rebuilt it in the neo-renaissance style between 1886 and 1888.
