Welcome to Evaro, Montana

Adna Anderson, chief construction engineer for the Northern Pacific Railroad, chose the name Evaro for the railroad section house here in August 1883. There are 2 stories about this name. One is that it honors a French count, named Evreux or Evaraux, who frequented the area during the fur trade era. According to the other story, Anderson's fiancée, Eva Roe, a mail-order bride, was killed in an accident shortly before they could be married. Beginning in 1897, the town next to the railroad station was named Blanchard, but in 1905 the residents renamed it Evaro.
