Neuhaus was first known in a document in 1213. From 1213 to 1332 Neuhaus was owned by the St. Gotthard Abbey. In 1478 the place was raised to the market for the first time. From 1607 the place belonged to the rule of the Batthyány family .
Like all of Burgenland, the place belonged to Hungary (German-West Hungary) until 1920/21 . Since 1898 had due to the Magyarization of the government in Budapest of Hungarian name Vasdobra be used. After the end of the First World War , after tough negotiations, German-West Hungary was awarded to Austria in the Treaties of St. Germain and Trianon in 1919. The place has belonged to the newly founded federal state of Burgenland since 1921 (see also the history of Burgenland ). Neuhaus am Klausenbach has been a market town since 1992 (through VO 74).
