The place is first mentioned in 1190 as Gleina (also Glyne or Glina) (other sources report that it was first mentioned in 1228). Also in 1190 an Otto von Glina, presumably the progenitor of the noble family of the same name, is called the Lords of Glina . The estate in Glyne was a fief of the lords of Lobdaburg- Burgau . Around 1341 the Lords of Lichtenhayn are named as owners. Between 1580 and 1594 they built a castle that looked more like a fortified castle . The complex consisted of five towers, a rampart and a moat, of which only a few remains are preserved today. Other owners were the Barons von Brand around 1655 . In 1796 Schöngleina became a ducal chamber property . After the Second World War , the chamber property was transferred to "public property". The main focus of production was on sow farming with piglet rearing. Later one went over to fruit growing and apprenticeship training. After the fall of the Wall, they reoriented themselves.
To distinguish it from other villages of the same name, Gleina became Schöngleina.
At the end of the 1930s, a military airfield was built on the Wöllmisse . In November 1946 the area was plowed. 1956 began the planning for a new airfield; the first glider hangar was built on the Wöllmisse in 1958. The first day of powered flight took place on September 13, 1959.
In the village there is the “Rappelkiste” daycare center , which was reopened in April 2000.
- Jena-Schöngleina airfield with a new air rescue station
- There is a stone cross about 300 m northeast of the village on the distinctive hill "Bones" . According to legend, a tailor is said to have lost his life here.
A large number of small businesses are based in the village: the Heideland Gutsverwaltung, a large pig production company, a fruit farm and on the outskirts, "auf der Zinna", a recycling company.
