Tyrone is a residential community about 25 miles south of Atlanta. The land in the area originally belonged to the Creek Indians. In the late 1800s, though, Irish farmers settled the area. Interestingly, some of the homes built by those first settlers are still occupied by their descendants.

Tyrone incorporated on August 18, 1911, and the town reportedly remembers the people who built the railroad here in 1907.
