Harvard was founded in 1906 when the Washington, Idaho and Montana Railway was extended to that point. The community was named after Harvard University, and its post office has been in operation since 1906.
The railroad slated it to be called "Canfield" after landowner Homer Canfield, who did not want the honor. He suggested "Harvard" as a complement to the existing Princeton, five miles (8 km) west, which was named after Princeton, Minnesota.
