Pedro Ballester started the development of the town in the late 1880s in some fields occupied by his family (the chacra Miguel Ballester y Flotat). A key factor for the success of the new town was the train which provided fast access to Buenos Aires. The town was named after the commercial partnership between Pedro Ballester and Guillermo Lacroze ("Sociedad Villa Ballester").
