The first written mention of the village of Dedowo comes from the 1570s. In 1901 a railway line passed the place for the first time, namely the Moscow – Rzhev line , which was later extended to Riga . Ten years later, this led to the establishment of the first industrial company in Dedowo, the textile manufacture that went into operation in 1913. A brick factory was also built nearby. Over the years, a workers' settlement was built in Dedowo and the neighboring villages, which was officially declared the city of Dedovsk in 1940.
