Novo Horizonte originates in the erection of the chapel of São José da
Trinidade, built in 1895 by Joaquim Ricardo da Silva. Antonio Cardoso
de Moraes, Joaquim Vaz Floriano, Joaquim Portes da Silva and Maria
Pinto Cardoso offered a piece of land to found a new town, which was
renamed in 1896 São José da Estiva, for the Estiva estate. In 1897,
the Foundation Commission renamed the town Novo Horizonte, as a
reference to the town of Belo Horizonte. The district of Novo
Horizonte was established by State Law No. 993 of 2 August 1906, as
part of the municipality of Boa Vista da Pedra (today, Itápolis).
The municipality of Novo Horizonte was established by State Law No.
1,530 of 28 February 1916 and inaugurated on 28 October 1917.

Paulo State with a blue star.
