History

According to the finds that archeologists found here – like the catacombs in the nearby Kincses Hill – this place was inhabited since 4000years.


Nobody knows when the first Hungarian settlement was built here. The first source which mentioned the name of Püspökladány dates back to the 13C. The settlement developed slowly until the 19C. Until that time it became deserted again and again, new owners and settlers came and gone. In the 19C after it got the title of an oppidium- which means a small town with some privileges, like to hold a market –, the regulation of river ways and some modernizations in agriculture, Püspökladány started to develop quickly. Soon the railway was laid down and new routes were made so it became an important trade center of this land. In the 20C more important civil institutions were built - like new schools, hospital, library, saving banks etc.-, so Püspökladány became the cultural, trade and the administrational center of this land. It got the title of a town in 1986.
