Brittsville was started in 1871 by a G. Beaver when he sought to open a mill on the Solomon River. A store, a post office and a drug store were in Brittsville by 1879.
When the railroad came through in 1879/1880, the town site was moved to the present site - a move of one mile. Alfred Simpson deeded some land on which the new town site stood, and in 1882, the name was changed to Simpson.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
