Between the years 900 and 1000 Zoetermeer began as a very small village with farmers and fishermen. Until the 17th century there was a lake, called the Zoetermeer (the Sweet Lake). Somewhere in the 13th century the still existing village centre was formed, now called the Dorpsstraat. Until 1935 the village centre we know today was actually split into two villages, Zoetermeer and Zegwaard. The inhabitants of the village of Zegwaard were poorer than those in Zoetermeer. Nowadays, the name Seghwaert (older way of spelling of Zegwaard) is used for one of the quarters (wijken) outside the old village centre. Zoetermeer began to grow slightly when the first train service came around 1868. A few decades later the Nutricia factory started on the roots near the station. The real growth started in 1966, when there was a high need of houses from people around The Hague. From then they started to build new quarters around the old village centre, so Zoetermeer began to grow and became a city in the meantime.
