The district was established in 1904, then named Khao Phang Krai (เขาพังไกร), as the administrative center was located in tambon Khao Phang Krai. When the center was moved in 1906 to tambon Hua Sai the district was renamed accordingly. In 1924 the district was reduced to a minor district (King Amphoe) under Pak Phanang district. In the same year the district office was moved to its present location to village 8 of tambon Hua Sai. 1937 the district regained full district status.
The district is subdivided into 11 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 99 villages (muban). Hua Sai is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Hua Sai and Na Saton. There are further 11 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
