The first written trace of the village dated back to 1256. Jindřichov
was one of feudal estates owned by the Arch-Episcopate and Episcopate of
Olomouc (till 1869). Owners of Jindřichov changed often. In the 17th century
the village was in possession of Counts from Hodice (1633) who became notorious
because of witchcraft processes (mostly in Zlaté Hory region).
