The community is on the west shore of Orange Lake.
Evinston was part of the Arredondo Grant of 1817. In 1884, the station at this location of the Florida Southern Railroad was named "Evinston", and a general store/post office was built.
Until the 1890s, orange growing was important, but a freeze in 1895 ended this pursuit.
