The name of the community was derived from the area where many of the original settlers came from, which was Reston Junction in Berwickshire, Scotland. The post office opened in 1890 on land location 9-7-27W. It was also a Canadian Pacific railway point and there was a school district which had the name Lanark and a district named Reston was later located on 9-7-27W.

On October 15, 2012, Reston made headlines as officials put on a price tag of $10 per lot in the community in order to attract families and businesses.[3][4]
