The municipal association of Lichtetal am Rennsteig was established in line with the administrative reorganization after German reunification. Before 1990, all four municipalities were independent, each with a town hall, administration, and autonomous mayor. The post of mayor is now honorary, with reimbursement of expenses (German: Aufwandsentschädigung). The name Lichtetal am Rennsteig was derived from the close proximity to the Thuringian Rennsteig and the Lichte River.
