Dublin History

The area now known as Dublin was originally the home of the Muskogee Native Americans. However, most of these tribal people fled westward when the European settlers arrived in the early 1800s. Confederate President Jefferson Davis stayed in Dublin before being captured in May of 1865. Though Dublin's economic development was originally based on the local cotton, soybean and corn trades, a number of industries flourished in this region in the second half of the 20th century.
