The appearance of the villages of Likino and Dulevo is associated with the times of Ivan the Terrible. According to other sources, the village of Likina was first mentioned in the census books of church lands of the Vladimir district in 1637. At that time there were only four courtyards in the village.

In 1832, Terenty Kuznetsov, a wealthy peasant from the Gzhel volost, bought land on the Dulevo wasteland near the village of Likino. Kuznetsov founded the Dulevo porcelain factory on this site. One of the legends says that next to the wasteland there was also a forest, which was looked after by the forester, Ivan Dulev. Allegedly, it was from him that the place began to be called Dulev.

In 1930, Likino and Dulevo merged into one workers' village. On December 1, 1937, the village of Likino-Dulyovo received the status of a city of regional subordination. On January 10, 2018, it received the status of a city of regional subordination. From January 10, 2018 to April 1, 2019 was the center of the Likino-Dulyovo urban district. On April 1, 2019, it was included in the Orekhovo-Zuevsky urban district. On April 26, a decree of the Governor of the Moscow Region dated April 26, 2019 No. 187-PG was introduced “On the assignment of settlements administratively subordinate to the city of Likino-Dulevo, Moscow Region, to the administrative subordination of the city of Orekhovo-Zuevo, Moscow Region.”
