Croats from Dusnok came to that area in 16th century from Slavonia. They speak Štokavian dialect of Croatian language, a Slavonian subdialect (Old-Shtokavian with non-reflected yat pronunciation). Similar dialectal features are seen today among population of Gradište near Županja (in western Syrmia) and around town of Našice in central eastern Slavonia (both in northeastern Croatia).
Its name was mentioned first in a document issued between 1193-1196 by King Béla III. Dusnok was devastated by the Ottoman invasion in the 16th century. In 1639 as an abandoned place was the property of János Miskey and István Veres. At the end of 17th century Catholic settlers from Dalmatia and Bosnia arrived. In early 18th century Dusnok was reclaimed by the Counts Cseszneky, however eventually it became the property of the archbishop of Kalocsa. In 1864 the village suffered from a huge blaze.
