A Fast-Growing Residential and Business Community Embracing Small-Town Values

Welcome to Ardmore, TN

The City of Ardmore, TN, is a fast-growing residential and business community embracing small-town values and a neighborly atmosphere. Nestled directly on the Tennessee and Alabama state lines, Interstate I-65, and the CSX Railroad, Ardmore is a great place for businesses needing easy access to transportation and for families who like to travel.

In 1910, the L & N Railroad decided to locate a more direct line between Nashville, TN, and Decatur, AL. This line was to cross the TN/AL line where Ardmore is now located. In 1911, the construction of the railroad line had begun.

The late Alex Austin thought that the railroad company would likely place a station at the point where it crossed the state line. By the time the railroad builders needed supplies, Austin was ready with a well-stocked store. The railroad was completed in 1914, and by this time, the village of Austin, as it was originally called, was a flourishing community. The first depot was a boxcar. When the depot was first opened, the railroad company called it Ardmore, and that name was taken over by the town.
