Lilienfeld was founded in 1848 by colonists from Katharinenstadt, Orlovskaya, Boisroux, Ernestinendorf, Philippsfeld, Kaneau, and Paulskaya. Emigration to America began in 1878 when 11 people left.
The Lutheran congregation in Lilienfeld belonged to the parish headquartered in Fresental where the pastor lived.
