The Partido (Department) of Coronel Suárez was created on 10 July 1882 during the governorship of Dr. Dardo Rocha.

On 24 September 1885, 50 Volga German families arrived at the port in Buenos Aires. Their destination was Colonia Hinojo, where most of them had relatives who had settled there earlier. Land in that area was scarce, and after 18 months, Father Luis Servet organized a group of settlers who negotiated an agreement with Edward Casey to settle in the vicinity of the Suace Corto (now known as Coronel Suárez) railway station.

Three colonies were founded south of Coronel Suárez:

San José
Santa María
Santa Trinidad
