The village was first mentioned in 1269 where its name was originated from the personal name "Csút". ("fel-" ["felső"] means "upper" in Hungarian.) In the Middle Ages the owners were crusaders from Székesfehérvár and in the 15. century became property of the Pálos rend.
Owners and inhabitants were often changed between the 1500s and 1800s.
The Roman Catholic church was built in classicist style between 1828 and 1840, and the Reformed church was finished by 1895.
A big change was the building of the railway which connected the village to the rest of the country, which was discontinued since.
In 2009 Felcsút became the richest Hungarian settlement by capita (171092 HUF), pushing 2nd and 12th district of Budapest to the 2nd and 3rd place. In 2008 Felcsút was standing in the 336th place.
