NRHP Reference Number


The Pulaski County town of Dublin came into being in 1854 when the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad established a depot where the rail line crossed the Giles and Pulaski Turnpike. The settlement became a center of commerce and transportation. As such, it served as a Confederate army supply link during the Civil War, over which the 1864 Battle of Cloyd’s Mountain was fought. The Dublin Historic District’s earliest buildings date to the mid-19th century, but the majority were built following the Civil War into the 1920s, with its heyday occurring in the early 1900s. Dublin today preserves an unhurried, small-town quality with a mix of unassertive commercial and residential architecture. The houses are generally free-standing, single-family structures in shady yards. A principal landmark in the Dublin Historic District is the 1913 Norfolk and Western Railway depot, a low wooden building marking the heart of the district.
