Wersten was mentioned in writing for the first time in 1063 as 'Werstine'. In 1218 it was mentioned under the name 'Warstein'. In 1360 it was given to the administration of Monheim.
Later, after the Duchy of Berg fell to Prussia in 1815, Wersten was still part of the Mayoralty of Benrath. In 1909 the citizens of Wersten reached their aim to become a part of Düsseldorf, because in that way they got electricity and city gas a few years earlier than settlements outside of Düsseldorf.
