Niepars was first mentioned in a document in 1282. The place was planned as part of the German colonization in the east . It was founded by the local Cistercian monastery , of which only the church remained. In 1944 Niepars had about 800 inhabitants. After the Second World War , the community took in around 1,000 resettlers and grew dramatically.

Niepars was then part of the Franzburg-Barth district until 1952 and then belonged to the Stralsund district in the Rostock district until 1994 . On May 26, 2019, Kummerow and Neu Bartelshagen were incorporated.

Obermützkow was named as a subdivision of Mützkow into Ober- and Untermützkow since 1862. The Gut Mützkow was u. a. owned by the Stralsund aristocratic family Mörder (15th century, the family went out in 1730), the Göben families (around 1746), von Schlagenteuffel (around 1770) and Helms (from 1862). The preserved manor house dates from the middle of the 19th century. A baroque gate from 1746 with the Göben coat of arms has been preserved.
