The Midland Railway Company constructed a railway siding in 1895 when the Midland to Walkaway line was opened. The town's name comes from a well that was named by the explorer Andrew Forrest when he surveyed a property for Edmund King who settled there in 1866.
The Coomberdale Hall, a timber framed, weatherboard clad structure with a corrugated iron roof, was built in about 1920. It is now heritage listed, and used as an adjunct to the adjoining community centre.
A silicon producer, Simcoa, has a quartz mine close to the town. The mineral Simcoa mines there, Coomberdale chert, is situated in the Coomberdale (also known as Noondine) threatened ecological community which contains some threatened species such as Acacia aristulata and Cryptandra glabiflora.
