The newspaper first appeared on June 1, 1857 under the title Advertentieblad voor verkoopingen van roerende en onroerende goederen . It started as a Monday weekly newspaper and, true to its title, was initially designed by the founding publisher TCB Ten Hagen as a pure advertising paper. After the first letter to the editor was printed at the end of April 1877, the newspaper, which was renamed Algemeen Nederlandsch Advertentieblad that year, also made editorial contributions from 1883. The name was later changed to Cobouw , an abbreviation for "Centraal Orgaan voor de bouwnijverheid" (Central organ for the building industry). On October 2, 1961, Cobouw switched to a daily publication and on November 1, 2007 to the tabloid format.
