Powelltown began life as a timber town in the 1890s, being named after the Powell Wood Processing Company which harvested mountain ash in the Upper Yarra Valley. The logs were transported from the forests to the sawmills by tramway and from there to the railheads at Yarra Junction and Warburton

The Post Office opened around 1904 as Blake’s, and was renamed Powelltown in 1912.
