The first written memory is from 1215, and in it the village was called Quer, in 1252 the name of the village was Ker. In the age of the Settlement, the area belonged to the Kare tribe. Up to the 15th century, the Kéri family owned the village. During the Turkish subjection, the area became empty, and then in the beginning of the 19th century, it was reunited. The village got its present name in 1905. In the first part of the 20th century, there were farming smallholders, and holders working. The Bárczay family was the only rich family. The Zombory family is also worth mentioning.

 

The most famous person who was born in the village is Lajos Baráth, author. The sights of the village are the Bárczay castle (18th centurial, built in rococo style), the Reformed church in Roman style from the 13th century, and the late Baroque Roman Catholic church.
