Historical
Erin Tennessee


In 1863, the town of ERIN was listed on a Middle Tennessee Civil War map. At that time, there were a few stores and an Irish railroad worker camp. The legend says "the hills and creeks reminded the Irish of their native Ireland and named their town Erin." The railroad was abandoned in the l980's and now, on the railroad bed, is a two-mile walking trail through Erin's historical district. While walking, you can see the Victorian homes and business buildings that are over 100 years old. There are also three large limekilns, 50 feet in height, that are of the same era. The railroad memorial pavilion has tables if you wish to get take-out from the restaurants and enjoy the outside. Also, there are benches along the walking trail. Houston County Library, downtown, has an extensive collection of microfilm of the area and many historical and genealogical publications. If you wish to ride the river ferry on the way home, there is one located at Danville, on the Tennessee River, and one at Cumberland City, on the Cumberland River. We welcome you to historic ERIN. And, on the 3rd Saturday in March, come back and visit for our annual Irish Celebration. "ERIN GO BRAGH"
