The documented history of European settlement of Itarumã begins in 1874 when Heitor Severino built the first house of palm fronds. The village was given the name of São Sebestião da Pimenta, honoring the saint and Dona Francisca Pimenta, a rich landowner of the region. The district was created in 1901, belonging to Jataí, and on an unknown date the name was shortened to Pimenta. In 1943 the name was changed to Itarumã. In 1953 it was dismembered from Jataí and became a municipality.
