The most ancient human settlements in Chorzele region dated back to the Neolithic age (i.e. 4500-1800 BC). During La Tene and Roman periods between 500 BC and the first centuries AD, there used to be a large burial ground on the Łysa Góra. In 1542, King Zygmunt 1st the Old, founded the town based on the Magdeburg law and in 1551 a parish was established in the region. In 1565 Chorzele included 121 homesteads and was regarded as a major beer-brewing and iron-manufacturing centre.






After the 3rd partition of Poland, the city was annexed into the Prussian possessions. In 1807 Chorzele was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Warsaw and in 1815 - into the Kingdom of Poland. The unique characteristics of the town could be attributed to the fact that it neighboured with the state border. It used to be a major horse and cattle trade centre.
