The town was once known as Fassifern Scrub and then Engelsburg after the first settler of the town. The town has a very rich German history, having been established “almost exclusively” by German settlers, reflected today in the many Anglo-German road and street names as well as the many local German settler descendant surnames. The name changed to Kalbar because of anti-German sentiment in 1916., though only first applied to the railway station. The Engelsberg School of Arts did not change to the Kalbar School of Arts until July, 1918. The Mount Edwards railway line reached the town in 1916.
