A village located along the route from Staszów to Bogoria. It used to be divided into two distinct localities: Dobra farmlands and Dobra village.
In 1820, 140 people were living in Dobra. Later, 35 households with 325 residents were recorded in 1827. By the end of the 19th century, Dobra had 7 brick houses, 21 wooden ones, a distillery, brick factory, quarry, and rich peat and gypsum reserves in its soil. In 1880 most of the farmlands were dissolved, and in time were transformed into a group of hamlets: Ogrody, Zagumnie, Ściegna, Kliny, Pocieszka. Those hamlets currently comprise the village.

During the interwar period, there were 30 people living in the former farmlands district, while the main village part of Dobra had 43 households with approximately 290 inhabitants. Dobra was a part of the Commune of Wiśniowa at the time.
