In 1966 the City of Hedemora was amalgamated with the rural municipality by the same name and with Husby.
Hedemora town was a recruit training place under Gustav Vasa's campaign against the Danes. In the victorious battle of Brunnbäck 1521, Peder Svensson from the village Vibberboda in Hedemora Municipality was one of the two commanding officers (the other was Olof Bonde from Norrbärke in Smedjebacken Municipality).
The Livkompaniet (company designated to protect the regiment chief) of Dalregementet was located in Hedemora and Husby parishes between 1682 and 1901. The head officers of Dalregementet also lived in Husby during this period, in Näs kungsgård and Husby kungsgård.
Hedemora has five sister cities:
