The town was founded as Real de Santiago de las Sabinas on July 25, 1693 by General Ignacio de Maya, but it was lived in its location since 1692.
It was named, Villa de Sabinas, Hidalgo in honor of Miguel Hidalgo, the Mexican independence war starter. In 1971 it lost its villa status and is now considered a city.
