Bruce Crossing was first settled by August Neuman, who built a sawmill at the location. The community was originally named Bruce's Crossing when its post office opened on March 5, 1888. The name came from the first postmaster, Donald M. Bruce, who owned a store at the crossing of the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic Railway and the old Military Road. It was shortened to Bruce Crossing on August 13, 1891.
