Pinedale was first known as Mortenson, after Neils Mortenson who established a Mormon settlement there in 1879. It was also known as Percheron, for the breed of stallions which Mortenson had brought with him. By 1888, however, the settlement was called Pinedale.

The former Pinedale Elementary School is now an historic building.
