[Front]:
Tigerville got its name from early settlers who settled here shortly after the Revolution. They called bobcats they saw here "tygers," and named the nearby Tyger River, Head of Tyger Baptist Church, later Tyger Baptist Church, was founded about 1800. A community grew up here, centered at the intersection of the State Road, built in 1820, and the Tugaloo Path, an old Indian trail.

The first post office here opened in Lemuel Jennings' general store in 1881, with Jennings as postmaster. Tigerville, described as "charming and romantic" in 1883, boasted several large houses, and an academy.
