In 1603, Duke Maximilian I bought the area as part of the winemaker rule . Schöfweg belonged to the Straubing Rent Office and the Diessenstein Regional Court of the Electorate of Bavaria . Around 1808 the exeremit Anton Franz Seraph Flurl built an emergency school in Schöfweg and in 1814 he built his own school house.
