Obukhovo used to be a famous center of textile industry. Its core enterprises were a sand pit and two carpet factories. Bankruptcy of the factories led to their closure in 2002.

Obukhovo was first mentioned in a book about Moscow region written in 1573–1574. In 1708, English businessman Andrew Stales built a powder mill in Obukhovo, which later manufactured gunpowder. In the first half of the 19th century the powder mill underwent bankruptcy and was sold on auction.

In 1775, Obukhovskaya suburb was organized near the powder mill.

In 1852, Anisim Tyulyaev built a clothing factory and in 1857 Mikhail Brunov built a carpet factory in Obukhovskaya suburb. After the October Revolution, both factories were nationalized. In 1958, the factories merged under the name of "Lenin Carpet and Clothing Enterprise of Obukhovo".

On May 21, 1928, the settlement was granted urban-type settlement status and renamed Obukhovo.
