George E. Hellewell and Miss Mary A. B. Hellewell were the first persons to file entry on land in the section of country in 1905. After they arrived the government surveyed the town and established a post office named in honor of Senator Weldon B. Heyburn. The town was first called Riverton then changed to Heyburn. In 1904 the Oregon Short Line Railroad started hauling material from Minidoka to the river to build a railroad bridge across the Snake River. To read more  heyburnidaho.org/
