Bifrost was incorporated as a Rural Municipality on 1 December 1907. Its name comes from Norse mythology, the name of the bridge that warriors cross from this life to the hereafter; only those who met death in battle could walk the Bifrost to Asgard, the home of the gods. In 2015, it merged with Riverton to form the municipality of Bifrost-Riverton.
