Between 1790 and 1794 the villages of Montalieu and Vercieu merged into a single administrative area.
Montalieu-Vercieu was famous for its stone quarries until the mid 20th-century, when it switched to cement-manufacturing (VICAT).
The population has grown substantially since the year 2000, after the creation of the Blue Valley site in 1987 when major work on the Rhône riverbed was carried out by the CNR.
Anecdote: Montalieu-Vercieu was to be named "Montalieu sur Rhône", but the idea was emphatically opposed by the inhabitants of Vercieu.
