The first settlers to the area were Irish soldiers, arriving in the 1820s. The town itself was born in the 1850s by Jackson Stitt, for whom the town is named; he was also the first postmaster in the area.
The original town site, now known as "Old Stittsville", was at the present intersection of Carp Road and Hazeldean Road. It was a small crossroads, consisting of a few houses, a small inn, and a general store and post office, which was owned by Jackson Stitt. Most of the small village was destroyed in a devastating fire, originating west of Ottawa, which swept through the area in 1870. The fire coincided with the opening of a railroad line from Ottawa to Carleton Place. As a result, the community was rebuilt in the area around the railway station, a mile to the south, where a number of businesses had already been set up.
Since the extension of the Queensway (aka Highway 417) in the 1970s made travel from and to Ottawa became quicker and easier, Stittsville has experienced rapid growth; it transformed from a quiet farming community of under 500 people to a suburb of 20,000+, in just over 25 years. This number will double as more and more homes are built and new neighbourhoods are developed.
