Josefův Důl village was built as a settlement for workers in the textile factory which was established here in the second half of the 18th century. It is situated on the left bank of the Jizera River, 5 kilometres north of the city of Mladá Boleslav.

The village history is not very long. Originally, the village included a part called Debř. It only consisted of a few houses on the site, surrounded by the arc formed by the Jizera on one side and the wooded hillside of Bradlec village on the other side. The further emergence of the village was conceived by moving the textile production from Kosmonosy. The feudal lord, Count Bolza, was the founder of the factory.

The beginning of textile production dates back to 1763. In 1764, one of the first textile factories in Bohemia was established here. The village was built as a settlement for workers in the local textile factory. The tomb of the Leitenberger family, the original owners and founders of the village and production plant, is located above the village. They also owned a beautiful castle with a park which is unfortunately in ruins today. At least, it was given a new facade. Until 1990, the village was the site of the national TIBA factory which manufactured fabrics for wide use in the textile industry.
