The Huron Hutterite Bruderhof 12 miles (19.3 kilometers) northeast of Huron, South Dakota, was founded in 1906 by 10 families from the Bon Homme Bruderhof and their preacher Joseph Waldner, who was chosen to the ministry in 1905 in the Bon Homme colony. In 1911 Michael Waldner was chosen to the ministry. In 1918 the Bruderhof sold its property and migrated to Canada, founding the Huron Bruderhof in Manitoba.

In 1936 a new colony by the same name was founded as a re-formation of the abandoned colony site by part of a group from the Roseisle Hutterite Colony. The current Huron Hutterite Colony was founded in 1945 as a division from the Jamesville Hutterite Colony (Utica, South Dakota, USA).

Daughter colonies of the current Huron Hutterite Colony include: Hillside Hutterite Colony (Doland, South Dakota, USA); Fordham Hutterite Colony (Carpenter, South Dakota, USA); and Shamrock Hutterite Colony (Carpenter, South Dakota, USA).

In 2017 the Huron Hutterite Colony was a Schmiedeleut Group 2 colony.
