The statistical area "Stoutenburg", which also can include the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 350.
In 1252, the castle Stoutenburg near the village was founded by the lord of Amersfoort. From 1615, the castle was owned by Johan van Oldenbarnevelt. The castle was replaced by a manor, built in 1888.
Until 1 June 1969, Stoutenburg was a separate municipality, covering the villages of Stoutenburg and Achterveld. Most of the territory of the former municipality is now part of Leusden; the northern part was annexed by the municipality of Amersfoort recently.
