History

The first small settlement was destroyed by Tatar troops in the 13C. The first source which mentioned the name of the new settlement dates back to the 15C. First it was the property of János Hunyadi, than it became the property of his wife. When the Turks invaded Hungary in the 16C this land became deserted again. New settlers came from Transdanubian settlements in the 18C. These protestant settlers got the right of free public worship. The new settlement developed and grew very quickly. In the 19C, after the railway as laid down it became an important center. Besides trade, agriculture and food industry, Orosháza was famous for its glass industry.
