A Wee Bit of Ireland - Erin, TN

A Wee Bit of Ireland - Erin, TN

This is the Billboard you see when driving in to Erin on TN Highway 49 from the East.

Erin was settled by the Irish laborers who worked on developing the railroad line between Memphis and Knoxville. The Irish named one of their work camps Erin because the clear creek, wooded hills and fog hovering over the West Fork of Wells Creek reminded them of the “Auld Sod” of Ireland.
