When the post office opened here in 1889, the town was named for postmaster and storeowner Henry Thayne. Thayne became a significant community in the valley with the opening of the cheese factory, which processed milk from the many dairy farms in the area. Thayne is also known for being the place where cutter racing first evolved in the 1920s.
