The original village was founded in the 16th ctury as a peat colony from which it got its name. "Ve" is the old Dutch word for peat and " for valley, so literally the name means "peat and valley". Until just after World War II, Ve remained a small community with only a few thousand residts. In the last fifty years the town grew rapidly to the 60,000+ inhabitants of today.

Until the second half of the 20th ctury, Ve was divided into two parts, a "Gelders" and an "Utrechts" part ("Gelders" comes from Gelderland and "Utrechts" from Utrecht, both Dutch provinces). This is because in the first few cturies of the town"s existce it was too small to be its own municipality. The southern half evtually became indepdt from Rh and Rswoude in 1795. The northern half separated from Ede in 1960.
