The original town site was located on the homestead of John E. Rule and was named Rule. A post office was established on April 23, 1887, and the name was changed to Ruleton. The Chicago, Kansas & Nebraska Railroad came through the area on June 22, 1888, and the post office, which was located in the Errington and Rich Store, was moved to a new location. The railroad built a station just to the east of the Ruleton store, and it became one of the stops along the rail line, along with Edson, Goodland and Kanorado.
The ethnicity of its settlers is not known.
