History

The area has long been settlement for different nations. Avars, Kuns and even Turkish people have lived there for centuries and left their footsteps there. A Turkish and an Avar cemetery have been discovered in Kisszállás proving this.

The Hungarian village was founded by the unification of 7 other small villages in the middle of the 19th century. Since then, its citizens have made there living by using the great topsoil for agricultural purposes.

Now, approximately 2,800 people live in the village. The common religion is Roman Catholic and most people are still make their living in the field of agriculture.

The name of the settlement: 'Kisszállás' in Hungarian is a compound word. The first part of the name (Kis-) means small, and the second part (-szállás) is a common Hungarian settlement ending like '-ville' in American. So, technically Kisszállás is the Hungarian Smallville.
