Originally known as "Fetterman", Eastvale was incorporated from parts of North Sewickley and Pulaski townships on July 1, 1892. The population was 256 at the 1900 census, the first taken since incorporation. A post office was operated in the community from 1897 to 1901, since which time Eastvale addresses have been served by the Beaver Falls post office. The first bridge between Eastvale and Beaver Falls was completed in the 1880s and replaced by the current Eastvale Bridge in 1962. Eastvale's economy was long dependent on a brickworks at the borough's southern end, which closed by the mid-1970s.
