Pre-colonial gold working sites were numerous, and the settlement was started in 1890 to serve the new colonial activity. Gold mining has declined (although small scale artisanal works continue) and the area is now more well known for it's agriculture. it is said to be the best agricultural land in Zimbabwe, with the Enterprise Valley coming second. Mazowe Dam, built 1920, was built to provide irrigation for the citrus estates.
Maize, cotton and tobacco are also grown in the area.
Mazoe is linked to many Rhodesian historical events, especially around the 1896 Chimuranga. Mbuya Nehanda lived in the area. The Mazoe Patrol went from Harare to Alice Mine at Mazoe to rescue whites there, and returned.
