Reedville was named for Simeon Gannett Reed, who was a member of the Oregon Steam Navigation Company, and a prominent figure in Columbia River transportation in 1859-1879. Reed and business partner William S. Ladd operated an 8,000-acre (32 km2) plus hobby farm in the area where they raised livestock and held harness races.[1] His property became the endowment of Reed College after the death of his wife Amanda Reed. Reedville post office was established in 1877 and ran until 1954.[2]

In 2003, Hillsboro opened the Reedville Creek Park, which included the city’s first skate park.[3] By 2004, parts of the community had been annexed into Hillsboro, which led to readdressing of several streets from the county based street numbering to the Hillsboro-based numbering system.[4]

In 2016, ground broke on a new subdivision called Reed's Crossing in South Hillsboro.[5] It is located just south of the intersection of Oregon Route 8 and Cornelius Pass Road. A commercial center called Reed's Crossing Town Center and a 23 acre Reed's Crossing Greenway park are expected to be in the new subdivision.
