Bennett, anticipating the route of the Louisville, St. Louis, and Texas Railroad, purchased 315 acres (127 ha) of farmland at the site and then, with the help of the railroad's employees, platted a new community over the 1888–89 winter. This was named for Irvington, New York, the hometown of the railroad's chief engineer, Eugene Cornwall. Irvington was formally incorporated by the state assembly in 1889.
