In Wolfshof there was a noble seat that became deserted in the late 15th century and was rebuilt around 1650 by Joachim Enzmilner , Freiherr von Windhag, the owner of the Rosenburg at the time. A copper engraving and a description of the noble seat can be found in the Topographia Windhagiana commissioned by Enzmilner . In 1992 the noble seat was reconstructed in a historicizing-romantic style. Together with Wanzenau and Etzmannsdorf am Kamp , Wolfshof formed the three Holy Lands . This designation reminds us that in the 16th century these places did not follow the Reformation like many other places in the region , but remained in the Catholic faith.
In 1938 the previously independent municipality was attached to the market town of Gars am Kamp , in 1945 it became independent again, but in 1971 it was again part of the market town of Gars am Kamp in the course of the amalgamation of the municipalities. Wolfshof is still a place with a strong agricultural character.
