Nyíregyháza lies around 17 kilometres (11 mi) to the west, connected by primary route 41.
The village is first recorded in the 13th Century as Hungarian: Opag.
Because of its convenient location, Apagy became an important place of commerce and for holding county meetings. It was here that the decision was made to have Nyíregyháza as the county seat of Szabolcs County.
At the start of the 15th century, the Kemecsey family became the owners. In the first half of the 16th century more families started to farm around Apagy: the Apagyi, Csajkos, Diószeghy, Hetey, Osváth, Puskas, Szegedy, Szentmiklóssy, Szécsy, Szilágyi and Zoltán families.
Apagy also held the 1608 Parliament.
The village started registering births, deaths and marriages in 1768.
The village really started to develop during the 18th century, and after the construction of the railway it became a local commercial hub.
At the start of the 20th century the Zoltán family (and descendants) farmed the land, and the major landholder was Mayer Leveleki.
