The largest town in the Hajdusag Region, Hajduboszormeny was populated even in the Stone Age, as testified by artifacts from that period exhibited at the local museum.
 
The first written mention of the town dates back to 1248, under the name of 'Nagyboszormeny'. Named after the Bulgarian-Turkish tribes, the people of the town were traders before the Tartar destruction. It was ranked a Scarborough in 1410. The so-called heyducks were originally stockbreeders, traders, and they only later became soldiers in the War of Independence led by Bocskai. After these perilous times, the heyducks were granted arms, and in 1609 they were settled in Boszormeny, calling the city Hajduboszormeny thereafter.

During the Bach-period, when all the Hungarian towns were given German names, the city's name ended up being translated into "Wütender Armenier", "bősz örmény” in Hungarian,  meaning Ferocious Armenian. :-)

In the 17th and 18th centuries the city became the administrative center for the following six places: Boszormeny, Dorog, Hadhaz, Nanas, Szoboszlo and Vamospercs.

One of the peculiarities of the city is its concentric arrangement. The Bocskai Square, once functioning as the city market, is regarded as one of the best-constructed main squares in Eastern Europe. It was built at the intersection of the four main roads crossing the town. The present shape of the Square was created in the reconstructions a century and a half ago.

An oil drill in the 1950s brought up thermal water, and soon after that a spa was built in Hajduboszormeny in 1960, attracting spa-tourism to the city. After having the complex modernized in 2001, and the new medical center built in 2004, today all type of rheumatic problems can be treated here.

The city provides a perfect venue for numerous countrywide and international festivals, such as the International Big Band Festival, Classical Guitar Festival, the KOTTA (sheet music) Festival or the International Sugar-beet Festival along with the Truck-dragging Competition greatly contribute to the vivid cultural life of the region.
