Plotted in 1886 and named after a Spaniard (Penaloza) who had come through the area while working on the railroad, Penalosa did not start growing until several years later. By 1912, there were two elevators, a barber shop, a grocery store, a hardware store and two department stores among the businesses in town.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
