The town’s history dates back to the Stone Age, with traces of human occupation from the Hallstatt culture. The Celts were in the Nagold basin by the 6th and 5th centuries BCE, and were responsible for naming the river Nagold, meaning flowing stretch of water. In the 1st century, the Romans established two settlements in the basin, one of which was discovered during the construction of Remigiuskirche in the 7th century. In the 13th century, Pfalzgraf Rudolf von Tübingen established Nagold as a city to protect his holdings in the northern Black Forest. Nagold became the administrative center of the region from Bondorf to Kniebis.
