The low court of Sonnenberg included Kalthäusern, Ruggenbühl and Stettfurt between the 13th Century until 1798.The village converted completely to the Reformed faith during the Protestant Reformation. It was part of the parish of Wängi until the church was built in 1746 and in 1752 the Stettfurt parish was created.Until the 19th Century agriculture in village operated on the Three-field system, along with fruit orchards and (until 1908) vineyards. Starting in 1850 livestock and dairy farming expanded into the village. A cheese factory opened in 1883. The distillery was founded in 1888. A cooperative, the Presshefefabrik Stettfurt, was established in 1902 and converted in 1946 into a corporation.
