Declo began as a Mormon settlement in the late 1870s. In 1884 the rail line between Salt Lake City and Boise arrived, and the town experienced a slight influx of growth and prosperity. A post office was established in 1917 and the town was named “Marshfield.” That name was later rejected because it was too long, and Declo was formed from the Dethles and Cloughly family names, prominent area settlers.
