The City of Fagersta (instituted in 1944) was in 1967 merged with Västervåla parish (which had been part of Surahammar Municipality since 1963). In 1971 it was transformed into a municipality of unitary type.
The municipal seat, Fagersta, is the only locality within the municipality with more than 200 inhabitants.
