The first time we find a mention of Nootdorp in 1281, when discussing the Noitdorper wech (= safe way between the mined peatlands). Presumably Nootdorperweg which is the same as the current Veenweg. In the peat-rich region, was fired on either side of the Noitdorper wech turf, which was especially designed for Die Hage, but also to Delft and the abbey of Loosduinen. In 1303 the first priest is appointed for residents to Noitdorper wech, which then becomes shorter termed Nut Village. The parish was administratively quite some time from the two lordships: Nieuwveen and Hoogeveen. First in 1724, there is the glory Nootdorp, who was from "the Count's bosom was withdrawn." The glory Nootdorp then existed alongside those of Hoogeveen and Nieuwveen. Ecclesiastical they have the three of them formed a single parish. (The Earl of) The Hague from the beginning was also master of Nieuwveen. Most peat was intended for the residents of The Courtyard. Until well into the 18th century Nootdorp has remained a farming village. Mid 18th century it had about 300 inhabitants. One hundred years later that number had doubled. The population of 1870 consists of 707 people, including 350 men and 357 women. What religion is concerned there are 373 Catholics and Protestants equally, including 331 Dutch Reformed.

Then in the 60 Plan West constructed, was built in the seventies, the district Female Country and in the '80s, the district built behind the town hall.

In 2002 the construction of shopping Parade was completed. This was erected on the spot where once the Short Course Harness races were held, the Nootdorpse Drafbaan.

The name Nootdorp is composed of the words 'note' and 'village'. Be said about the meaning of the first part 'note' the following can. The Middle Dutch word 'note' is in all the older Germanic languages, as in the Old High German Noz, the Anglo-Saxon NEAT, the Old noordsch naut, Swedish RIP, the Old frieze wet, today's North Frisian utility, Danish nöd , the English navy. The even older origin of the word lies in the Gothic verb niutan, our ge-stapling, which includes utility belongs. The original meaning of the word 'note' was: what produces the country to live. The contemporary terms 'emergency', 'necessity', 'necessary', 'useful' still refer to here. In the Middle Ages had the word "note" a twofold meaning: it could indicate the products of the country, so grain, grass but also wood and peat. The word was also used in some areas to refer to 'livestock'. To distinguish between the ordinary income and the cattle one sees in medieval writings the word "nut" also in connection with 'quic' (live; directly related to today's words grow and grow and spry, in the sense of liveliness) . So the word quekenoot emerged as a designation for livestock. It can be assumed that the term 'note' in the name refers to Nootdorp the first sense: land (construction) product. The current Long weg was formerly Notweg or Nootweg. In a few other places in the Netherlands, we get the term "note" yet against in street names, such as the Notweg in Bergen and Nootweg in Loosdrecht. About the meaning of the term 'Nootweg' can be mentioned the following. In a document of 1401 is to a certain Coen van Oosterwijk granted the freedom to diking the land outside the Zeeburg between Amsterdam and Ypesloot, while was at least permitted, 'in his country lanes to legghen to aen the Zeeburch to be Noote Uyt income to enter the country. "From this sense it can be seen that the word" nut "around 1400 even without the prefix 'queke' has come to mean livestock. The most common meaning of the term in Netherlands Nootweg or Notweg is the road on which they moved cattle.

The second part 'village' has since 1200 in the Netherlands do not undergo significant change: it is a collection of houses. The word itself is much older and come in similar sounds also reflected in many Germanic languages. Linguists also point in this regard on the link with the word 'mound', an artificial increase in sod. Nootdorp is that connection very special. The oldest known written record of Nootdorp dates from 1281 (Noitdorp). Because there are about 1700 to no formal notation exist, the name Nootdorp is in older pieces written down on the way in which the name of the writer understood. This has led to many different spellings: Noitdorp, Nut Dorpe, Noittorpe, Notdorp etc.

The mill 'Windlust' was built in 1781 in Delft and was moved in 1885 to Nootdorp.

In 1885 started the construction of the mill 'The Windlust' at the intersection of the Oudeweg, Geerweg and what is called the Strijf that time, the quay between the current Cross Quay area and the Dobbeplas area. The old hollow post mill that has been around since 1700 in that place, is broken down before. The construction of the new mill illustrates the growth of livestock and agriculture in the reclaimed areas. The Windlust itself at the time of construction is not new: it comes from Delft where he had done since 1780/81 as a bovine, snuff and fulling mill. In February 1885 he dismantled it and transported in parts to Nootdorp to service after rebuilding to do as a corn mill. The first stone of the foundation of the mill followed by the 5-year Leendert Blonk, son of miller Blonk, the owner of the mill.
