The town was named after W.T. Evans, a blacksmith.[9]

Evans settled in the area in 1902, and built a successful ranch. From 1918 to 1920, portions of the ranch were sold to the Socony-Mobil and Texas Oil Companies.[10]

Evansville is located at 42°51′28″N106°15′33″W (42.857798, -106.259102).[11]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 3.58 square miles (9.27 km2), of which 3.54 square miles (9.17 km2) is land and 0.04 square miles (0.10 km2) is water.[12]

In 2018, an area of contaminated groundwater that had been classified as a superfund site for three decades was partially removed from the EPA‘s National Priorities List.[13] Contaminants at the site include benzene and tetrachloroethene.[14] It is believed that the contamination at the Mystery Bridge/U.S. Highway 20 Superfund site was caused by industrial operations at a plant operated by Kinder Morgan and an industrial truck wash operated by Dow Chemical and Dowell-Schlumberger.[14][15]
