Carlisle History

A group of East Coast settlers arrived in the late 1700s and established a community known as the "Jersey Settlement." In the early 1800s, James Tapscott donated land to Baptists who founded the Tapscott Church. Soon afterward, the community became an important railroad stop. George B. Carlisle bought land in the area and platted the community in the mid 19th century. Eventually, the community adopted the name "Carlisle" and was officially incorporated in 1958.
