The Town of Blue River runs along its namesake, the Blue River, beginning two miles south of Breckenridge and ends just before Highway 9 begins its climb up Hoosier Pass and over the Continental Divide.

Many of the routes through these neighborhoods are improved historic roads that led to mining sites established during the gold-mining boom. The residential subdivisions often take their names from some of those claims made in the late 1800s: Leap Year, the 96, Loma Verde, Golden Crown, the Royal; or natural features like Spruce Valley and Sherwood Forest. The town was incorporated in 1964 and about 100 small homes were built in that decade.
