The community of Lavinia was established in 1904 as a station point on the CNR Rapid City Subdivision, in what is now the Municipality of Hamiota. Named for Lavinia Hoy, wife of a member of the municipal council, Lavinia had a post office and a church, the former of which closed in 1965. A fieldstone monument at the site commemorates the church and pioneers of the district.
