History of Community

McVille was founded in 1906 after the railroad was established. McVille was founded by the McDougall family. The town was so named because many of the early residents in the area had last names starting with "Mc".

The original town was a few miles away from its present location. With the advancement of the railroad system, the town was moved.

Prominent early businesses included an elevator, a bank, a blacksmith shop, and a general store.
