Near Caldwell is a precontact Plains Village period settlement called the Buresh site, which has yielded clues about Native American lifeways prior to the arrival of people of European and African descent.

Caldwell was founded in 1871. It is named in honor of Senator Alexander Caldwell. Caldwell was incorporated as a city in 1879. The first post office in Caldwell was established in may 1871. The Chisholm trail ran along the East side of the community from 1867 to 1871.

In 1887, the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska railway built a branch line North to South from Herington to Caldwell. This branch line connected Herington, lost springs, Lincolnville, Antelope, Marion, he, Peabody, Elbing, whitewater, furley, Kechi, Wichita, Peck, Corbin, Wellington, Caldwell. This branch line was extended to pond Creek, Oklahoma in 1888, and connected Caldwell, Renfrow, Medford, Jeffersons original pond, stream. By 1893, it was built in Fort worth, Texas. This railroad foreclosed in 1891 and was captured in Chicago, Rock island and Pacific railway, which shut down in 1980 and reorganized as Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas railroad, merged in 1988 with Missouri railroad of the Pacific, merged in 1997 with Union Pacific railroad.

In 1985, Caldwell 6th classes under the guidance of their teacher, Larry Miller began a successful campaign to have the ornate box turtle named the state reptile of Kansas. They have received support from across the country and on April 14, 1986, the Governor of Kansas came to the school and signed the bill, adding a new official symbol of the state of Kansas.

During the annual homecoming celebration in the fall of 1986, mayor Caldwell signed the proclamation, declaring that Caldwell will forever be known as the "ornate box Turtle capital of the world" and a few years later, a professional wildlife artist was hired to paint a portrait of ornate box turtle on the side of a building in the city centre, on the main street.
