Long Pine was founded in about 1876, and grew quickly when the railroad was extended to the settlement in 1881. It took its name from nearby Long Pine Creek.
Long Pine was a hub for the Chicago and North Western Transportation Company on what came to be known as the Cowboy Line and at one time held a large roundhouse, turntable, and servicing facility. With the advent of diesel locomotives, the steam servicing facilities were no longer needed and were moved elsewhere. Eventually, the entire line was abandoned and the last train came through the town in 1992. The former right of way has since become a recreational trail known as the Cowboy Trail.
