The name Boldo came from Native Americans living in the area who named it after a proud young deer or "bold doe" as noted by Willie Barton in his book about the history of Boldo called "Tracks of a Bold Doe". Several of these Native Americans are buried in the local Boldo cemetery. A post office operated under the name Boldo from 1878 to 1904. Boldo was formerly home to Boldo Rural School, which served as a location for teaching vocational agriculture as outlined in the Smith–Hughes Act. In 1903, the Boldo Grist Mill served as a flour and grist mill for people of the surrounding area.
Across the road that goes around Boldo Cemetery is a new cemetery known as Boldo Memory Gardens. Many think it is all one cemetery with a new section added.
