The district of Käpfnach is located in the south-eastern part of the municipality of Horgen. The Aabach cuts through Käpfnach and formed a small delta in the lake.

With the construction of the Zurich – Zug railway and the settlement of a number of industrial companies, a small town center developed in the Oberdorf (train station ). Its center is Bergli-Platz with the striking fountain. With the expansion of the industrial zone in Spätz to the west in the direction of the A3 motorway, this district gained in importance in the 1960s. The increase in the population in this area was taken into account in 1972 with the construction of the Bergli schoolhouse and the community's old people's home.
Sihlbrugg Station ( Zimmerberg tunnel and the Albis tunnel of the SBB. Until 2006 it was the end point of the standard gauge Sihl Valley Railway .

The quarter was shaped by viticulture until about 100 years ago. The only industrial enterprise was the paper mill, which operated until 2006, directly on the lake. Next to the paper mill is the Horgen sewage treatment plant.
The Zimmerberg hospital is located in the Tannenbach district. Since 2006, a “Tertianum” retirement home has been in operation right next to the hospital. The “Amalia Widmer Nursing Home” is a foundation of the rich, single farmer's daughter Amalia Widmer, who wanted to ensure that her name was retained in this way. The land for the Tannenbach primary school was also donated by Miss Widmer. Recently there is a church in the quarter. The New Apostolic Congregation built them next to the listed houses at the entrance to the town (which are owned by the New Apostles).

The earliest settlements in the municipality are the lakeside settlements of the pile dwellers . The oldest Neolithic settlement remains were found at today's ship pier and assigned to the Pfyn culture . They originated from 3900 to 3500 BC. The people of the Horgen culture, named after their place of discovery (between around 3500 and 2800 BC), settled in the "Scheller" near the border with Oberrieden. During the excavations from 1987 to 1990, the emergence of the seven separate cultural layers in the "Scheller" in the years 3100 to 3000 BC was dendrochronologically identified . Dated. The Horgen settlements were linked to contemporary settlements on other Swiss lakes.
The two Celtic women's graves in Thalacker date from the 2nd century. Alamannic graves at the chapel on Stockerstrasse, in the "Entweder" and the "Bätbur" have been documented for the time of the Great Migration in the 7th century .
In the document through which King Otto I donated extensive land in the Horgen area to the Fraumünster monastery in Zurich on March 1, 952 , Horgen was mentioned as Horga for the first time. The name goes back to an Old High German field name that was roughly * ze horwun (' near the swampy landscape').
Since the late Middle Ages, Horgen experienced an upswing as a trading center. Around 1437, Horgen became an upper bailiff when the Zurich government united it with the bailiwick of Thalwil and, after the Reformation, with the Rufers court in Adliswil. The area of the Upper Bailiwick extended from Wollishofen to the border with Wädenswil. In the old Zurich War , during the Zurich Reformation by Huldrych Zwingli and the Counter Reformation , the area of the municipality of Horgen was an outpost against Catholic Central Switzerland .
There were religious disputes from 1585 between the rulers in the city and the Anabaptist community in Horgenberg. In the course of these events, Hans Landis was beheaded on September 30, 1614 in Zurich. In 1637 Hans Meyli was also taken prisoner, but he was able to escape.
The Napoleonic turmoil, the Helvetic Republic 1798–1803 and the disputes over the mediation constitution in 1803 culminated in 1804 in the buck war . In Helvetic and mediation, Horgen remained the district capital. The regeneration constitution of 1831 laid the foundation for today's Horgen district.
The construction of the links bank Zurichseebahn between Zurich and Näfels was accompanied by some difficulties. The route led over large riparian zones heaped up in the lake. On February 9, 1875, a 135 m long section of the route under construction slid into the lake. The route was slightly relocated, but on September 20, two days after the opening of the railway line, another 204 m long section in the water, more than 6500 m², sank. The station sank by half a meter and had to be demolished. As a result, a new route was laid further inland.
At the end of 2016, a vote on the merger of Hirzel with Horgen was accepted with 59 percent yes votes. The merger was completed on January 1, 2018.
coat of arms
- In red, a silver, standing swan with gold reinforcement
The oldest depiction of the coat of arms can be found in Gerold Edlibach's chronicle from 1486, a silver swan on a red background. The swan looked to the right then.
The modern community coats of arms go back to the work of the community coat of arms commission of the Antiquarian Society of Zurich, which determined the coats of arms of the then 179 Zurich communities between 1926 and 1936 and published them in the form of postcards. In the sixties the AGZ made the decision to reissue the coats of arms in book form. However, publication was delayed by the death of the draftsman Walter Käch in 1970. Käch was replaced by the heraldist Fritz Brunner, and the register of the municipality's coat of arms was finally published in 1977.
(Peter Ziegler, Die Gemeindewappen des Kantons Zürich . Published by the Antiquarian Society of Zurich. Coat of arms drawings by Walter Käch and Fritz Brunner. Zürich, Verlagberichthaus, 1977) Since the 1000th anniversary in 1952, the municipality has been using a graphically simple, modern drawing of the swan , designed by the local graphic artist Josef Wieser. However, the new version of the coat of arms was not included in the book of municipal coats of arms of the canton of Zurich , although this was only published 25 years later.
(Paul Kläui, Geschichte der Gemeinde Horgen . On behalf of the Chronicle Commission Horgen for the 1000th anniversary. Horgen 1952. New coat of arms on pages 681 - 682).

Viticulture was completely abandoned in the first quarter of the 20th century as a result of the pests ( phylloxera ) that appeared from 1850 and the unfavorable situation. Today there are still 30 farms, including 25 full-time farms. In 2005 around 100 employees worked 500 hectares of land. The largest areas are to the west of the A3 motorway and in the southern municipal area of Rietwies.

In 1943, the year of the war, the four textile machine factories Grob, Schweiter, Stäubli and Vollenweider merged to form the «Die 4 von Horgen» interest group in order to overcome the difficulties of the time. They began to work on the world markets (export quota around 90%) together as a sales and advertising association in order to be able to maintain their independence.
In the course of the 20th century, the economic focus shifted more and more towards service companies.
