History[edit]

Lispeszentadorján was created in 1937 by the union of three villages: Lispe, Szentadorján and Erdőhát. It has one of the oldest written records in Hungary: in 1024 Stephen I of Hungary donated the village to the monastery of Zalavár. The most important event in the history of this small village was the discovery of the oil fields and the opening of the first industrial oil well in Hungary in 1937.
