The Village of Hayden was incorporated in 1955 with a total of 440 acres with a population of around 700 people.
The village received its name from a man named Matthew Hayden, a soldier from Fort Sherman who won the rights to name the lake, and therefore the city, by winning a game of “seven-up” against fellow soldiers John Hager and John Hickey and some other homesteaders in the late 1870s.
The town became a center for the agriculture, logging, and recreation in the early 1900s. The Spokane and Inland Empire Railroad added service to Hayden in 1907 and in the same year the posh Hayden Lake Country Club was built.  With the advent of the automobile, the center of the town shifted from the lake and railroad and reoriented towards Government Way. the post office moved from Bozanta Tavern (now the Hayden Lake Country Club) to Hayden Village in 1959.
