Jewish people lived in the village from the mid-1800s. Mosondarnó and Zseli combined in 1934 to form the village of Darnózseli, which was a small centre for the Jewish population of the area. They had a prayer house on the main street, Fő utca, and a cemetery on the outskirts of the village. The latter was opened in 1883, with the last burial taking place in 1943. In 1985, a memorial wall was erected to commemorate the Darnózseli and the Szigetköz victims of the deportations.
As the village grew in the 19th century, it became increasingly urgent to build a new church instead of the small church on the outskirts of the village. Plans for the new church were completed by May 1914, but construction did not begin then because of World War I. Following the war, the village’s parish priest continued to push for the church’s construction. In the summer of 1929, work began to grace the village with a bright, spacious neo-Gothic house of God with a tall tower, based on Károly Pavlovics’s plans. The organ was made by Otto Rieger’s company in Budapest while the glass windows depicting the saints were also produced in a Budapest workshop. The altar and the Stations of the Cross pictures are the work of János Heckenast. The benches were made by János Igali, a local carpenter. The church was consecrated in 1930 by Dr Jusztinián Serédi, Archbishop of Esztergom and prince primate.
The village’s main square has gained several new wooden sculptures. These can be found in front of the church and in front of the fire station. They are the work of József Bálint. The wood-carver from Fejér County has made Darnózseli’s new main square a more homey place for local residents and also attractive for cyclists to take a break with his sculptures depicting life and belief in the Szigetköz (the Szigetköz tree, St Joseph and the baby Jesus, bird’s-nesters, etc.).
