The opening sequence of Captain America: The First Avenger, combined with the historical information at the start of Thor provides the answer. ~1000 years ago, Asgardians fought the Frost Giants on Earth as part of a cross-realm war. During this war, the Tesseract was lost on Earth.

It was found by humans and hidden away in Norway. At the start of Captain America, the Red Skull finds the Tesseract and makes use of it to power HYDRA's weapons. In the end, it's dropped into the Atlantic ocean, and recovered by Tony Stark's father, Howard Stark. SHIELD held on to it in modern times, unable to unlock its secrets.

Why would Asgardians use Tesseract against Frost Giants? Wouldn't it be dangerous? –  Sachin Shekhar Jun 11 at 1:36

In the beginning of Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), they show what seems to be a small house, or tomb if you will. When the leader of HYDRA starts speaking, he talks about the "treasure room of Odin" Odin's prize in that room was the Tessaract, and Odin lost it while fighting his battle with the Frost Giants on Earth. It was found and encased with a leader of Europe when he died. When people found the tomb they protected it when the found out what it (the Tessaract) was from legend.

I edited this to remove the unnecessary comments and fix the formatting a little, but you should cite where you got your information from. –  Monty129 Jul 24 '13 at 22:09
    
@Monty129 Does a movie title suffice as a citation? –  Chad Levy Jul 25 '13 at 4:17

@Paperjam If you roll back the edits to the original user16178 said (s)he "read it on the internet" citing what website the info was from would be better. –  Monty129 Jul 25 '13 at 9:28

I think the tesseract was held by the frost giant in the film Thor in their battle with Odin. But since Odin beat the frost giants, he got the tesseract for himself and kept it in his treasure room. Loki even used it to freeze Heidmall, the guardian of the bifrost. From there how did it get to earth?

That was the Casket of Ancient Winters that froze things, not the Tesseract. –  Keen Jun 11 at 1:03
