The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad was building through Sheridan County in 1888, and the early settlers voted for a $12,000 bond to be used in establishing a town along the rail line. A depot was built after the land was purchased and a town company was started. It was named for Selden G. Hopkins, a member of the town company.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
