Francis Warren settled the area of the present town of Bovill about 1890. He built a log home at what is now the center of Bovill, and the vicinity came to be known as Warren Meadows.

In 1899 an English Lord, Hugh Bovill, visited the area and in 1901 purchased the land. He soon returned with his wife, Lady Charlotte, and two daughters, Gwendolyn and Dorothy. In a few years the Bovills had built a hotel for the accommodation of sportsmen wishing to enjoy the area's superb hunting and fishing.

In 1907 he established a store to serve the homesteaders and was appointed postmaster. The extensive logging of the white pine by the Potlatch Lumber Company and the rowdy logging camps and loggers ruined Bovill's paradise. He and his family left the area in 1911.

While lumber is still the primary industry, Bovill is nestled in a beautiful mountain meadow, with opportunities for great camping, hunting & fishing available in all directions.
