While smallpox wiped out most Aboriginals there, the European settlers began farming activities from 1791 onwards. Many living Aboriginals also received land grants for their assistance. The Native Institution was shifted to Blacktown in 1823, attesting to the importance of the area. By 1860, it had a railway station.

The Shire of Blacktown came up in 1906, and the next three decades saw its population growing close to 15,000. There was massive suburban growth in the 1950s and 1960s, leading to many schools, colleges and residential areas. The Westpoint shopping centre was inaugurated in 1973.
