The name High Level described the height of the land that separates the Peace River and the Hay River. In 1786 fur traders arrived in the area and it wasn't until 1947 that the first settlers arrived. High Level Company was started in High Level in 1957 and a year later the Northland Utilities established the first power plant. The first post office was established in 1958 with Jesse Matheson, the first postmaster. For many years High Level was known as Tloc Moi (Hay Meadow). In those early years when many Beaver Indians roamed the area, it was a stopping place for trappers on their way from Hay Lakes to Fort Vermilion dating back to 1788. Oilfields were discovered in the area in the 1960's. The railway finally came to the area in 1963 and the first hotel was built in High Level in 1964. (It was torn down in 1997) The town was incorporated in 1965.
