The center of Eggleston is generally considered at the junction of Goodhue County Roads 18 and 19.
Previously, Eggleston was its own unincorporated community before it was annexed by the city of Red Wing.
Eggleston was named after John E. Eggleston and Joseph Eggleston, who settled at the portion of the community in what was then Burnside Township. From 1875 to 1934, the community had a post office. The community also had a station on the Chicago, Milwaukee, St Paul and Pacific Railroad.
