In the early 1890s a new gristmill opened in the area. There was a celebratory baseball game after which a schoolteacher addressed the crowd and suggested the name Umpire for the new post office.
Public education for early childhood, elementary and secondary school students is available from the Cossatot River School District, which includes Umpire High School. The school's mascot is the Wildcats and blue and white serve as the school colors.
