History of Dömsöd


The two villages Dömsöd and Dab were united on 1st January in 1938 and named Dömsöd. We know a few details about Dab from 1313. The Sáry family is the landholder in 1453. The village wasn’t swept away during the Turkish rule.

The reformed church was set up in 1852. The town has its seal since 1686.

There were 29 unit of land held in villeinage in 1720. The reformed church was built in 1803 and it had many valuable devotional objects. That time Hungarians lived here.

In the last century István Nagy Pest county recorder created a wide spread fruit-bearing. Some of them still exist by taking care of the last followers.

At the turn off the century the owner of the big estate were the Ráday, the Boemelburg and the Papp family. The 1271 document mentions the town’s name as “Gumshud”. Some research says it comes from the fruit word – Hungarian name gyümölcs.

From the 14th century it was the queens’ property.

During the Turkish occupation of Hungary the people suffered o lot.

The World War I and the World War II killed many men. The village could stay remain because of the excellent quality of land and the animal keeping.

 In 1949-50 an agricultural cooperating started. It rearranged the ownership. It made the little and the medium landowners penniless. This process got stronger after defeating the 1956 revolution. After 1960 became a strong agricultural cooperating system. They incorporated in1970 and pick up the name:  Dózsa TSZ. They were very successful and received national appreciation.

The technical infrastructure picks up speed in 1990s.

In the last 1,5 decades the inhabitants are able to heat their houses with natural gas.

We love our little village that lies next to the beautiful big river: Danube.
