History:

The modern town has sprung from the settlement of Pavlovo (founded in 1328) and Vokhna named after the river Vokhna, a tributary of the Klyazma.



In 1609 and 1618 the villagers took part in battles against Polish invaders. In 1812 peasants of Vokhonskaya Volost and Pavlovo Settlement organized a partisan detachment that fought against the French troops under the command of Napoleons Marshal Michel Ney.

By the mid 19th century Pavlovo Settlement had grown into a trade centre and a gathering place for handicraft production and annual fairs.

In 1844 it became the town of Pavlovsky Posad (part of Moscow Province) with adjacent villages Zakharovo, Dubrovo, Melenki and Usovo attached to it. The year 1855 saw the foundation of Labzins large kerchief printing factory. By the early 20th century the towns industry had increased considerably.
