According to the finds that archeologists found here, this land was inhabited since the Stone Ages. The first source which mentioned the name of the Jászárokszállás, dates back to the 13C. this was the time when Béla IV. settled the Jazygian people here. Although the village became almost deserted, when the Turks invaded Hungary in the 16C, after, it became inhabited again and flourished in the 17C. Although it was the property of the Teutonic Order, its rich inhabitants bought this land from the Order, and became the leaders of Jászárokszállás.
