Newald was originally called Ross, for Charles Ross, a pioneer settler, and under the latter name was platted in 1905.[3][1] The community was renamed Newald in 1906 in honor of a local landowner.[3] A post office was established as Newald in 1905, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1985.[4]
