History

The first source which mentions the name of Heves, dates back to the 13C. It was the center of the royal estate, and in the 14C it became the center of the archdeacon. After it had developed, it became an oppidium in the15C, which means a small town with some privileges. During the 16-17C it became deserted time after time due to the repeated defeats of different troops. In the 18C German settlers settled here. It started to develop; two small castles and six mansions were built. It became famous for its agriculture. Melon and tobacco cultivations were the most important. It also became the chief town of the district. Its inhabitants became real citizens. The town had a lively cultural life in this period. In the 20C it had stopped to develop, and even lost its status of town, and got it back only in the 80s. Nowadays it is a peaceful place which still has a small-townish atmosphere.
