The modern town has sprung from the settlement of Pavlovo (founded in 1328) and Vokhna named after the river Vokhna, a tributary of the Klyazma.

By the mid 19th century Pavlovo Settlement had grown into a trade centre and a gathering place for handicraft production and annual fairs.

In 1844 it became the town of Pavlovsky Posad (part of Moscow Province) with adjacent villages Zakharovo, Dubrovo, Melenki and Usovo attached to it. The year 1855 saw the foundation of Labzins large kerchief printing factory. By the early 20th century the towns industry had increased considerably.
