In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1317. King Robert I. gave it, together with other villages and town of Humenné, as a reward for faithful service to Drugeth family. It is assumed that village is older than with estimated origin in 13. century.

First known name of the village was Kemence and from 1416 it is called in official records Nagy Kemence. Mansion located in the village was built by Csáky family. Later it was owned by Andrássy family and Gejza Andrassy was the last count that lived in the mansion. In 1925 he sold part of land to citizens which lead to village expansion.
