Here is a history page for Chester and the area. The name for the town was chosen by Burwell Johnson and Oscar Martin. Johnson had been born in Chester, Missouri and Martin in Chester, Vermont. They decided to "keep the name for the town," when the post office was established in 1894 at a local stage stop and ranch. But, the town was not really started until December of 1909 when some of the land was subdivided and offered for sale.
