The earliest record of a community in this location is a place identified as Chumbul in a papal tax record in 1333. This place came under Turkish (Ottoman) administration in 1552. As a result of the Treaty of Passarowitz this place came under Austrian rule in 1718. The surrounding region had become seriously depopulated during the period of Turkish rule.
The town came under Serbian military rule on Nov. 17, 1918. As a result of the Paris Peace Conference, the town came within the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. As the result of an adjustment in the border between Romania and the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, it became part of Romania with the name Jimbolia on April 9, 1924. At the same time, the village of Modoš was transferred from Romania to the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.
Formerly, the town was populated mainly by ethnic Germans, but as result of emigration, the Romanians form currently the largest ethnic group. The 2011 census counted 10,048 inhabitants. 78.17% Romanians, 11.59% Hungarians, 3.03% Germans.
