The Jamesville Hutterite Bruderhof, Utica, South Dakota, was founded in 1884 by several families from  the Wolf Creek Bruderhof. Their preacher, Elias Walter, Sr., was chosen to the ministry in 1889 in Wolf Creek. In 1918 the Bruderhof sold its possessions and moved to Alberta, founding the Springvale Bruderhof near Rocky Ford. In 1936 the Jamesville site was bought by the Roseisle Hutterite Colony from Manitoba, which moved as a colony to the new site. Their preacher, Friedrich Waldner, was chosen in the Roseisle Bruderhof. In 1950 the Jamesville settlement numbered 107 souls.

Daughter colonies of the Jamesville Hutterite Colony include: Huron Hutterite Colony (Huron, South Dakota, USA); Clark Hutterite Colony (Doland, South Dakota, USA); Greenwood Hutterite Colony (Delmont, South Dakota, USA); and Orland Hutterite Colony (Montrose, South Dakota, USA).

In 2017 the Jamesville Hutterite Colony was a Schmiedeleut Group 2 colony.
