The first mention of Gryazovets dates back to 1538, when it was described as a settlement dependent on the Korniliyevo-Komelsky Monastery.[6] The settlement was chartered on January 25, 1780, when it became the seat of Gryazovetsky Uyezd of Vologda Viceroyalty.[6] The viceroyalty was abolished in 1796 and its part which included Gryazovetsky Uyezd became Vologda Governorate.[9][10]

Throughout the 19th century, the population of Gryazovets varied between two and three thousand, most of whom were employed in agriculture.[11] The most common industry was dyeing.[11] In 1872, the railway connecting Yaroslavl and Vologda was built, and a railway station was open in Gryazovets, facilitating the development of the trade.[11]

On August 7, 1924, Gryazovetsky Uyezd was abolished and the territory was included into Vologodsky Uyezd.[12] On July 15, 1929, several governorates, including Vologda Governorate, were merged into Northern Krai, the uyezds were abolished, and Gryazovets became the administrative center of the newly established Gryazovetsky District.[12]
