Bluffdale is located on U.S. Highway 277 and the North Paluxy River in Erath County.

Before the community was granted a post office by the name of Bluffdale, the community was known as Bluff Spring by the pioneers who settled near the site's artesian wells. Land was donated for the townsite a short distance to the east when the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railway came through in 1889.
