Eminence was laid out in July 1855 by William Wigal. The name possibly is commendatory; but according to some accounts it is descriptive, as the village site allegedly was the highest point between Indianapolis and Vincennes when State Road 67 was surveyed.
The post office at Eminence has been in operation since 1857.
Eminence is served by the Eminence School Corporation.
