Itajobi was founded on 22 June 1884 by Inácio Nantes da Costa, who offered a piece of land from the Campo Ālegre estate to establish a new settlement. A chapel dedicated to Our Lady of the Apparition was erected. The arrival in 1894 of Italian, German and Syrian immigrants boosted the development of agriculture and commerce in the town.
