When Peter Zieschang moved there in 1870 it was established as a Wendish settlement that was called Hochkirk . In 1902, it was renamed Noack when John Ernest Noack became postmaster.

A school was established there in 1922, and the Noack oilfield was developed in 1933. 2007 has seen Noack shrink as a lot small towns due.
