The Angerdorf Waltersdorf was first mentioned in 1183, according to other sources in 1342. The place name is probably derived from the personal name Walter. Waltersdorf was originally a Slavic village, later the village was repopulated by the Flemings and received its current name as early as 1342. The ownership rights in Waltersdorf changed frequently over the course of time. Initially, Waltersdorf was in pledge possession of the von Schlieben brothers , who sold it to the Baruth rulers in 1441 . From 1529 the place belonged to Niebendorf as a Vorwerk . After the Congress of Vienna , Waltersdorf was a municipality in the then newly founded district of Jüterbog-Luckenwalde . In 1841 Waltersdorf had 142 inhabitants. The local church was a branch of the Heinsdorf parish .
In July 1952 the Luckenwalde district, which had since been renamed, was dissolved and Waltersdorf became part of the Jüterbog district in the GDR district of Potsdam . After the reunification and the Brandenburg district reform in 1993, the community belonged to the Teltow-Fläming district . On December 31, 1997, Waltersdorf and 13 other communities merged to form the Niederer Fläming community, which has been administered by the Dahme / Mark Office since January 1, 2018 .
