According to archeological finds, the area was already inhabited in the Migration Period. Under the reign of the Árpád dynasty Cumans settled here. In the 16th century the region fell under Ottoman control and since then shared the fate of Kiskunhalas town. After the expulsion of Turks Pirtó became a pasture field shared by Kiskunhalas and the Counts Cseszneky de Milvány. By the 19th century and extended network of isolated farms characterized the Pirtó area which was still administered by the council of Kiskunhalas. Pirtó as an independent village was founded only in 1947.


It covers an area of 34.49 km2 (13 sq mi) and has a population of 992 people (2002).
