The village got its name from a noble family. Conrad von Mentzenhusin (Metzenhausen) was first mentioned in 1278. The best-known representative of this noble family from Metzenhausen, who worked there for almost 500 years, was Johann III. who was Archbishop of Trier from 1531 to 1540. With the occupation of the left bank of the Rhine in 1794 by French revolutionary troops , the place became French, in 1815 it was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna . Since 1946 the place has been part of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
