Nowthen used to be known as Burns Township up until the 30th of June 2008, when it finally incorporated as the City of Nowthen.

They city got its name from an unincorporated community near the intersection of County Roads 5 and 22 within the former township. It was named by the town’s first ever postmaster, James Hare, who was fond of saying, “now, then” when speaking to other people.
