Maxwell Hutterite Bruderhof near Scotland, Hutchinson County, South Dakota, was founded in 1900. Joseph Wipf, who had been chosen preacher in the Bon Homme Bruderhof in 1891, moved with 17 families to Maxwell and settled the colony there. Wipf was born in Russia, and died in 1917. Samuel Hofer was chosen preacher in 1911. In 1918 the Bruderhof sold its property and settled the Maxwell Bruderhof near Pigeon Lake, Manitoba. In 1947 the New Elm Springs Bruderhof bought this site and rebuilt it.

Daughter colonies of the Maxwell Hutterite Colony include: Lake View Hutterite Colony (Lake Andres, South Dakota, USA); and Spring Creek Hutterite Colony (Forbes, North Dakota, USA).

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