In 1848, a Mr. Bloomer decided to build a mill in what he felt was a desirable place for one. He brought in his crews and began to build. By the time winter arrived, Bloomer changed his mind, sold out to H. S. Allen and left the area. In 1855, the village of Bloomer was settled with Sylvester Van Loon as one of the first settlers. It was first called Vanville. The name was changed in 1867 when the area was surveyed and platted.
