The name Steinbergsspliß suggests that the Hofschaft was a split from the nearby Gut Steinberg.

In the 19th century Steinbergsspliß belonged to the Oberdüssel honor of the mayor's office in Wülfrath . From 1816 to 1861 it belonged to the Elberfeld district and from 1861 to the old Mettmann district . Steinbergsspliß was right on the border between Oberdüssel and the community of Sonnborn , which was renamed Vohwinkel in 1880 .

In 1888 ten residents lived in one house in Steinbergsspliß.

With the municipal reform of 1929, the eastern part of the Oberdüssel district around Zum Kothen was split off from Wülfrath and incorporated into the newly founded city of Wuppertal.

In 1990 the gap in the federal road 224n between Velbert and Wuppertal was completed on a deep cut . For the construction of the expressway, the place that was in the area of ​​the cut had to be removed. After completion, the road was upgraded to the federal highway 535 in 2007.
