Originally located two miles east and one and one half miles north of the present town site, Kalvesta was founded in 1887 by a town company. It had a lumber yard, newspaper and a post office within its first few years of existence.
The reason for moving the town is likely attributed to the railroad planning to build tracks through the area from Jetmore to Garden City; however, like several other towns in western Kansas, those plans never came to fruition.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
