Around 1130, when the Trub Monastery was founded, Trubschachen (von Schachen in the sense of shrub forest along lakes and rivers, later also for grassland in such locations), together with Marbach, Schangnau and Escholzmatt, belonged to the monastery district of the Trub Benedictine Abbey. Until 1867 the community was officially called Lauperswil Viertel . In 1852 Trubschachen was confirmed in its autonomy by the Bernese municipal law and on January 1, 1868 the name was changed from Lauperswilviertel to Trubschachen.

On August 7, 1946, a Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun of the Swiss Army crashed not far from the train station. The plane flew into a cable of a material ropeway. Both pilots were killed.
