The village probably owes its name to a chapel dedicated to Saint Naborius , which the Lorsch Monastery built here around 800. Nabern 861 appears for the first time in the written documents. In a deed of donation this year, the Count Palatine Rudolf from the Alaholfinger family transferred property in Nabern to the Wiesensteig Monastery. From the 11th to the middle of the 12th century Nabern belonged to the Zähring family, then to the dukes of Teck, who sold their rights to the Habsburgs at the beginning of the 14th century . At the end of the 14th century, the high authorities finally came to the Counts of Württemberg. A local nobility is mentioned only once in the 12th century with "Arnoldus de Nabera". In addition to the noble families of the Lords of Dettingen, the Stein zum Rechtenstein and Gangeler von Bissingen, numerous ecclesiastical manors were wealthy in Nabern. In addition to the Wiesensteig monastery, the monastery of St. Peter should be mentioned, since 1261 the Kirchheimer Frauenkloster and in 1501 the canons of Oberhofen in Göppingen. The spiritual property came to Württemberg through the Reformation and finally in 1806 through the secularization .

Nabern 1683, forest inventory book by Andreas Kieser

In the war against Duke Ulrich, the Nabern population suffered severe damage from the Swabian Confederation . The population was around 150 in the middle of the 16th century and rose to around 300 by the beginning of the Thirty Years' War . This war reduced the population to almost a fifth by 1648.

The parish church of St. John , one of the oldest in the Esslingen district, already existed at the beginning of the 12th century. With the introduction of the Reformation in 1534, Duke Ulrich initially let the parish go under. In 1552 Duke Christoph appointed the first Protestant pastor in Nabern. Due to the reduced population during the Thirty Years War, the parish was also looked after by the church as a branch of Bissingen from 1635 to 1656. In the 17th century, Nabern was also part of the Bissingen court. A schoolmaster can be identified for the first time since 1617. Due to the aftermath of the Thirty Years War, the school died and the students attended the Bissinger School. From 1684 the schoolroom was located in the then newly built town hall (today used as a wine tavern in the old town hall) and a schoolmaster taught the Nabern youth. The new school building dates from 1873/74 (today town hall).

Until the end of the 19th century, commercial activity in Nabern was carried out on the side, because agriculture dominated. The village lost its purely rural character in 1897 when the mechanical cotton weaving mill of the company Kolb & Schüle AG was built on the Bissingen mark . In 1938 the plant of the Schempp-Hirth GmbH company founded by Wolf Hirth and Martin Schempp was built on the road to Dettingen . With the settlement of further industrial and commercial enterprises after the Second World War , the economic conditions in the municipality of Nabern gradually changed.

The population of around 450, which has remained almost constant since 1861, increased to 710 in 1950 due to the admission of displaced persons. Half of the 400 people in employment were still active in agriculture.

Numerous infrastructure measures, such as B. Building land development, land consolidation, sewerage, sewage treatment plant, road and path construction, the new town hall, the primary school, the settlement of numerous commercial enterprises, created 1200 jobs. Nabern developed into the preferred community with a population of almost 2000 inhabitants at times.

On January 1, 1974, it was incorporated into the large district town of Kirchheim unter Teck. Since then there has been a local administration in the town hall, which is headed by a full-time mayor.
