The area of the district includes many former Cossack settlements[6] among which are Diiivka, Novi Kodaky, Sukhachivka and others.[7] Novi Kodaky was founded during the reign of Bohdan Khmelnytsky as Hetman of Zaporizhian Host and was the center of the "Kodak palanquin" of the Zaporozhian Sich.[8] A trade route from Poltava passed through Novi Kodak.[8] At the end of the 19th century the area became the center of the metallurgical industry of what is now Ukraine.[6] The colony of the Bryansk plant was formed to house factory workers.[6] Other settlements for laborers grew together with it: Chechelivka, Shlyakhovka and Fabryka.[6] Near the factories a railway station – Horiayinove, a secondary school for 600 people and hospital were built.[6] In 1928, the Ilyich Palace of Culture was built, and in 1936 the building of the Industrial Technical School was built.[6]

The current district was created in 1940 out of the city's Kodatskyi and Fabrychno-Chechelivskyi districts.[1] In 2006, the old Cossack town of Taromske,[7] which was located between former Dnipropetrovsk and former Dniprodzerzhynsk (now Kamianske), was merged into the district. Taromske was located on the ancient road from Kyiv to Khortytsia.[7]

Until 26 November 2015 the district was named after Vladimir Lenin (Ukrainian: Ленінський район, Leninskyi District); that day it was renamed to Novokodatskyi District to comply with decommunization laws.[9]
