This blackland prairie site was first settled in 1854 by a slave named Adam Orgain, who was sent to watch over the ranching interests of his owner, John Orgain. Soon after, a handful of families, including the Huttos, settled on the land. The town was named after James Emory Hutto, who sold 50 acres in 1876 for a town site and donated land for the International Great Northern Railroad's right-of-way through the area.

Early 20th-century Texas architecture examples can be found downtown. The Hutto Olde Tyme Days Festival is held the third Saturday in October.
