Evelyn is an unincorporated community in Inyo County, California.[1] It is located on the Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad 5 miles (8 km) south-southeast of Eagle Mountain,[2] at an elevation of 1880 feet (573 m).[1]

The place was named in 1907 for Evelyn Smith, wife of J.M. Smith, of the Borax company.[2]

Currently, there are no residents of Evelyn. No structures remain. All that remains is a paved loop of road next to the old railroad grade. The California Department of Transportation uses this area to store paving materials and test equipment for work on California State Route 127 and other area roads.
