Ivanivka (also known as Antipo-Markovka, Antipo-Markivs’ke, Velyke Antipo-Markivs’ke) was established in the first half of the 19th century. From 1802, the region belonged to the Kherson Governorate (Khersonskaya gubernia). In 1859, Ivanivka had a Jewish prayer house.

In 1897, the Jewish population of Ivanivka appears to have had only a handful of Jewish residents amongst its 947 total inhabitants.
