Julianadorp was founded in 1909 by mr P. Loopuyt. That year a small church was built in the Loopuyt hamlet which turned it into a real village.
On April 30, 1909 Crown Princess Juliana of the Netherlands was born and in October 1909 Queen Wilhelmina received the request to permit the village to carry the name Julianadorp.
Within 14 days mr P. Loopuyt, the applicant, received the permit to give Julianadorp its name.
In 2009 Julianadorp celebrated its centenary.
The economy of the village, the center of the Koegras polder, was mainly carried by cattle-and sheep farms which in some cases also grew grains which made them mixed farms. In 1927/28 the first flower bulb growers arrived from Haarlem and Lisse. Even now there are many commuters. And so an ever growing village arose. With the development since 1970 of the districts Middelzand, Vogelzand, Kruiszwin, Wierbalg, Doorzwin, Malzwin, Boterzwin en Zwanenbalg Julianadorp had seen an enormous growth.
