The toponym Eschbach is a composed word consisting of the German words Esche (ash tree) and Bach (brook). However, the settlement is first mentioned in a document of the Abbey of Saint Gall of 807 under the name Ascabah. Asca is Old High German meaning burnt ash. On the other hand, the Geographical Dictionary of the Archive of Baden-Württemberg relates it to aspa (Old High German for aspen).
Only the farmhouse which has since been called Weinstetter Hof to the north of the former village was spared from the flood. In 1271 the Lords of Üsenberg had sold the estate to the Knights of Saint John of Freiburg. Around 1606 the Prince Grand Prior of Rosenbach built the mansion. It was restored in 2012.
