In 1890, the town was founded as Bonito when several Hispanic families made a deal with a cattle agent to settle here. The land was then deeded to the Butte Land and Cattle Company after the land was proved. In 1901, a post office was established, with Urbano Arrey as the first postmaster; he gave his name to the community. Today descendants of the original homesteaders still live in the community.
