In the Middle Ages Almelo grew around the House Almelo, located at a country road crossing the small Aa river.
Later the local inhouse textile "industry" grew with the introduction of the steam engine in 1830. Better infrastructure like the Overijssels Kanaal of 1855) and the Salzbergen - Almelo railroad of 1865 started the industrialisation.
