Pioneer E.R. Hawley arrived in central Idaho in the early 1880s, and before long, area settlers decided to apply for a post office. Using founder Hawley as the preferred site’s name, community residents were disappointed to learn the request had been denied. As it turns out, the post office decided that Hawley looked and sounded too similar to the already established town of Hailey, Idaho. Subsequently, the postal department concocted the town’s present name in 1884.
