By the administrative area of Hódmezővásárhely we are supposed to mean not only the inner part of the town but also the vast world of farmsteads together with it. Fate of the former farmsteads of Kishomok on the two sides of the main road 47 between Hódmezővásárhely and Szeged has been formed differently as compared to the farmsteads in other parts of the town. As the area could not be cultivated on a large scale, due to its natural conditions, it was divided into plots and formed into closed gardens in the 1960s. In the gardens around the farmsteads the former owners grew grapes and fruit until these places were transformed into gardens for resting purposes. In the 1970s small sheds and then weekend-houses were built on the plots. In the 1980s the population started to move into this area which is resulted from decentralization, so the first permanent inhabitants settled down in the closed gardens of Kishomok that time. This process can be explained primarily with social reasons. One of the most outstanding elements of the Hungarian suburbanization was the spatial reorganization of the population. The same thing happened in Hódmezővásárhely, too. For the last 20 years it has been Kishomok where the infrastructural development could be experienced the most, comparing to certain parts of the Town. By today the former world of farmsteads has been transformed into an independent district.
