This area was settled in 1871 by a man from Stonehenge, England. Maurice Brown homesteaded on land that eventually became the town site of Blue Hill. The name comes from a range of hills that surround the town that are known for a blue hue during the early morning hours.
The town soon had a general store (run by Maurice Brown), a creamery, and a post office. The schoolhouse was built in 1887. The town is now defunct.
