Nadarzyn is an old settlement whose traditions date back to the times of the Medieval Masovian Duchy. The first registered information about Nadarzyn comes from the beginning of the 15th Century. It was the property of the Nadarzynscy family, which lived in nearby Rusiec at the time. The locality received town laws from Masovian Duke Boleslaw IV in 1453. In the 16th Century, its first school and hospital were established.
During the Polish-Swedish Wars in the 17th Century, the old church in Nadarzyn was destroyed. A new one was built in 1661. The town changed owners several times, and eventually it fell into Prussian hands as a result of the Partitioning of Poland. In 1806, it was passed to Russian control. The same year, St. Clement’s Church was constructed in Nadarzyn, a project of Jakub Kubicki.
The largest Polish uprisings didn’t exclude Nadarzyn – it was a site of battle during the Kosciuszko Insurrection, the November Uprising of 1830 and the January Uprising of 1863. After the last national rebellion, Russian authorities deprived Nadarzyn of its town status, a common way to punish towns that supported insurgents.
After World War I and the accompanying damage to its buildings, Nadarzyn became a Polish town.
