Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Kerrville is an unincorporated community located in the northern portion of Shelby County, Tennessee, United States. It is located along about 3.5 miles to the north of Millington and just to the south of the Tipton County line, along with Atoka and Munford city limits.


According to the Shelby County Register of Deeds website, Kerrville was laid out around 1873 along the Paducah and Memphis Railroad (now the Canadian National Railway). The 44 acre parcel of land was donated in 1874 by a Dr. A.H. Kerr to the railroad for a railway station and small town (hence its name). Many of the streets on the plat do not exist as of today, but "Old Randolph Road" exists as Kerrville-Rosemark Road south of the railroad, and Sullivan Road north of the tracks. The area of the railroad station is now part of Gin Road.

Today, the area is mainly occupied by a few residences and a Pig-n-Whistle Bar-B-Que Restaurant. The center of the area is located at the present day intersections of Mudville Road, Kerrville-Rosemark Road, Old Tipton Road, and Sullivan Road. It is less than half a mile from U.S. Route 51. Kerrville is located within the Millington annexation reserve.
