It is situated in the Podlaskie Voivodeship (since 1999), having previously been in Białystok Voivodeship (1975-1998) (1975–1998). The town was founded in 16th century and in 1777 it was granted with city rights. In 1775 royal astronomer Szymon Antoni Sobiekrajski published a report in which he stated that Suchowola is the exact geographic centre of Europe.
Due to serious losses in population during the World War II the rights were halted in 1950. On January 1, 1997, Suchowola became a town again. Among the famous people born in and around Suchowola was Jerzy Popiełuszko.
