As an independent township, Táborfalva has only a very short history. It was established in 1949 under this name. Before then, it was called Örkény-Tabor, and it belonged to the neighboring Örkény town. As the southernmost township of Pest County, it is located between highways M5 and 50. It is easily accessible from the directions of Budapest and Kecskemet either by train or car. Its name reveals its connection to the army, which has been continuous since the 1870s, when the Hungarian national treasury purchased the first piece of land for the purposes of a field artillery training ground. The township’s development was the result of further land purchases. This area has increased greatly in the later years and became one of the largest plain field artillery training grounds in Europe. Stemming from this connection, the township’s life has become linked with the army, which provided the most jobs for the residents of the township until the collapse of the socialist system.


Throughout its history, the settlement was repeatedly depopulated and changed owners similarly to neighboring townships. Repopulating efforts were often resolved by recruiting agricultural settlers. Residential development was also advanced by the creation of small plots. As a result of these efforts, three distinct settlements developed in the area: Rákoczi settlement, Csurgay farm, and Tábor. By the mid-20th century, the central part of today’s township was formulated from two of these settlements. By this time, the infrastructural constructions were started, which created the back bone of the township and culminated in today’s full-service public utilities system. While under the socialist regime the settlement was part of Örkény’s government structure, in 1989 it became an independent township. The development of the township after its independence was incommensurable and it included not only investments into the public utility system but also the expansion of elementary school, renovation of kindergarten, medical facilities, and paved streets. The township’s economy cannot depend on agricultural production because of unfavorable soil conditions, so its leadership decided to shift direction toward industrial development. As a result, they established a 30-hectare industrial park with full service infrastructure, which aims to make the area more desirable for businesses.
