The community was established about 1869 by the Vandalia Railroad, and called "Long Point Station". Grant Pickett, who operated a pumping station for the railroad, renamed the town after his former home of Vevay, Indiana.[2]

A post office was established in 1883 and named "Vevay"; the name was changed to Vevay Park in 1887.[2]
