The area of Farroupilha was first settled in 1875 by three families (Stefano Crippa, Tomazo Radaelli, and Luigi Sperafico) that immigrated from Milan, Italy. The municipality of Farroupilha was officially created on 11 December 1934. The city was named "Farroupilha" after the Centennial anniversary of the Ragamuffin War that was celebrated in the subsequent year.
