was probably founded in the 6th century, at the time Francia
expanded to the east and so took possession of the Aischgrund. It is likely that one of the seven Slavonian churches founded by Charlemagne
within the Aischgrund stood in Uehlfeld.

The first documented notice of Uehlfeld
is from 1123. The village was named _Oulentevelt_. Later the name changed to _Ulletenvelt_ (1127), _Uelevelt_ (1154), _Ulfeldium_ (1158) or _Ulefelt_ (1181).

Like other villages, Uehlfeld
was devastated by several great fires. The last of them occurred in 1888.

Wars have left their marks on Uehlfeld. In the German Peasants\' War (1524–1525) the village's castle was destroyed. In the Second Margrave War (1552) the boroughs of Nonndorf and Rothenberg were destroyed and were not rebuilt. The Thirty Years\' War left its mark with the actions of Colonel Kehraus, whose troops raided and burned the village.

In 1649 Veit-vom-Berg was assigned pastor of the village. He was born in 1612 in Baudenbach . He held his inaugural speech in front of 31 persons (10 men, 15 women and 6 children), the last inhabitants after a time full of privation.

Before Thirty Years' War. Uehlfeld
had 600 inhabitants. Veit-vom-Berg died in Uehlfeld
in 1675. Today the elementary and secondary schools and a street are named after him. The number of inhabitants did not again reach 600 until the mid-19th century.

During the 19th century many Jewish
salesmen came as new citizens to Uehlfeld, so trade and business developed. The Jews built a synagogue , opened a school, and established a graveyard, the tombstones of which are still to be seen today. In 1837 the Jews of Uehlfeld numbered 300, or about half the population, but by 1933, after the anti-semitic campaigns of the Nazi
holocaust began, there were only 50 Jewish
people left in the town.

The former headmaster of the elementary and secondary schools, Karl Schmer, compiled the history of Uehlfeld
into three almanacs, which can be purchased from the municipality office. Uehlfeld
