The Big Bend post office was established on November 4, 1878 one mile west of the current town of Speed. The town of Big Bend was platted on October 8, 1887. It was located there after the railroad came through and was given its name because of the bend in the railroad tracks. The town was later incorporated on the 2nd of January in 1928 as Speed.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
