 Lucas Gonzélez was founded on 20 August 1888.  The town is named in honor of Lucas González who served as Minister of Finance during the administrations of Bartolomé Mitre and Nicolás Avellaneda.

Many families from the Volga German communities in Entre Ríos moved to Lucas González over the years.  Pastor Jakob Riffel, historian of the Volga Germans in Argentina, served the Lutheran parish here for many years.
