Lauwe was founded on 19 August 1767 by colonists recruited by LeRoy & Pictet. The original 41 families were from Nüremberg, Baden, Darmstadt, Neu-Isenburg, the Palatinate, the Rheinland, Saxony, and Brandenberg. Laub was named in honor of its first leader, Johann Lauwe.

Lauwe was one of the villages that was looted during the 1774 uprising by Pugachev.

During the famine in 1921, there were 94 people who died in Lauwe.

Today, what remains of the Volga German former colony of Lauwe is known as Yablonovka.
