In 1918 many of the Hutterian Brethren in the United States went to Canada because of Canada's more liberal provisions for conscientious objectors to war. The Bruderhof at Maxmill, South Dakota, consisting of 29 families and their preacher Samuel Hofer, made a settlement near Headingly, MB. Samuel Hofer was chosen minister on 15 January 1911, and confirmed on 17 March, 1918, in South Dakota. Other preachers were Jorg Waldner, chosen 4 August 1929, confirmed 16 December 1934, Jorg Wipf, chosen 31 January 1937, and Joseph Hofer, chosen 1919 and confirmed 18 March 1928. In 1947 the Bruderhof had 78 inhabitants, of whom 28 were baptized members.

Daughter colonies of Maxwell include: Barickman (Cartier, Manitoba); Brightstone (Lac Du Bonnet, Manitoba); Lakeside (Cartier, Manitoba); Ridgeville (Ridgeville, Manitoba); Alsask (Alsask, Saskatchewan, Canada); and Souris River (Elgin, Manitoba).

In 2017 the Maxwell Colony was a Schmiedeleut Group 2 colony.
