Nadanghat is located in the flood plains of the Khargeswari or Khari river.
The Syeds were famed zemindars of the area during Muslim rule and they continued during the British period. When the Muslim League was formed in Dhaka in 1906, it did not have much of an influence in Bardhaman district. Most of the Muslim leaders were with the Congress. In 1919, when Mahatma Gandhi launched the Khilafat movement and followed it up with a non-cooperation movement, Harihar Sen, played an important role in the area. In order to combat the famine of 1943, food committees were formed in Bardhaman district. The Kalna subdivisional conference was organised with great difficulty at Nadanghat. Haragobinda Rej, Talukdar Sheikh, Abodh Bihari Pandy and Abdul Hasnat played important roles in the movement. In the same year flood relief was organised by the Communist Party in a commendable manner in Nadanghat area.
