The municipality was formed on 8 September 1857, through the merger of the former municipalities of Haarlemmerliede and Spaarnwoude.[1]

On 22 September 1863, Houtrijk en Polanen and Zuidschalkwijk were added to the municipality,[1] of which Zuidschalkwijk was subsequently annexed by the city of Haarlem.

During the construction of the North Sea Canal (completed 1867), large portions of the IJ Bay were enclosed with dikes and made into polders, thereby enlarging the area of the municipality significantly. On the other hand, Haarlemmerliede en Spaarnwoude lost large areas to the cities of Haarlem and Amsterdam in 1927, 1963, and 1970.
