Norrtälje traces its history to 1219, when the location was first mentioned as Tälje. After some time, the name officially became Norrtälje, to distinguish it from the other Tälje in the province, Södertälje.
In 1719, large parts of the central town were burned down by a Russian army during the Russian Pillage of 1719-1721.
