Juye was the site of the " Juye Incident" on November 1, 1897. The murder of Christian missionaries was used by the German Empire as an excuse to occupy Jiaozhou Bay.


From 1949 to 1952 Huxi prefecture (Juye and the other county-level parts) was under the provincial administration of Pingyuan (province), Pingyuan. In April 1953 Huxi was dismantled and its parts shared out. Juye then came into its present municipal region of Heze.
