It was first mentioned as a village in 1545.[6] In 1882, a metallurgical plant, which produced telegraph wires, nails, and hooks, was built here.[6] The railway station opened in 1901, boosting development.[6] Before 1918, Babayevo was a part of Ustyuzhensky Uyezd of Novgorod Governorate.[citation needed] In June 1918, five uyezds of Novgorod Governorate, including Ustyuzhensky Uyezd, were split off to form Cherepovets Governorate, with the administrative center in Cherepovets.[citation needed] In 1925, Babayevo was granted town status.[6] On August 1, 1927, Cherepovets Governorate was abolished and its territory became Cherepovets Okrug of Leningrad Oblast.[9] At the same time, uyezds were abolished and Babayevsky District was established.[9] Babayevo became the administrative center of the district.[citation needed] On September 23, 1937, Babayevsky District was transferred to newly established Vologda Oblast.[9]
