The community was named after the organization Farmer's Alliance, an organized agrarian economic movement among American farmers which had been organized in Illinois in 1880. Farmer’s Alliance was a strong and flourishing organization in Alliance at that time. Alliance is also called Jugtown because of the pottery that was manufactured from the clay found there. A post office was established there in 1889 and was in operation until 1953.
