Sweet Valley was established in 1842. Before its official founding, it was made up of Cramer Hook and Pleasant Hill. Josiah Ruggles was the first postmaster in 1847, and residents needed to decide on an official name for the area because Cramer Hook and Pleasant Hill were not large enough individually. Locals decided to call the area “Sweet Valley” because of the many maple trees in the town.
