In 1827, a 'Round Prairie Post Office' was opened near the southern border of a much larger historic Round Prairie Township (subdivided to create what became Guthrie Township only later, around 1890).
In 1836, a historic town of 'Bloomfield', next to or containing the Round Prairie Post Office, was surveyed. (This was near what is now the settlement of Guthrie, which was not officially laid out until 1872, which from 1874 to 1954 had a separate Guthrie Post Office, and was within the boundaries of Round Prairie Township prior to the creation of Guthrie Township around 1890).
In 1841 the Round Prairie Post Office was shut down and moved about 1/2 mile southward, clearly into Cedar Township, and was renamed 'New Bloomfield Post Office', around which today's town of New Bloomfield formed. Details of relevant township boundary changes are given in the article on Round Prairie Township.
