Dublin was created in 1854 when the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad established a depot where the railroad crossed the Giles and Pulaski turnpike. An important commercial and transportation hub for central Pulaski County, Dublin also served as a significant Confederate army supply center during the Civil War. The supply center was the pivotal objective of the armies in the 1864 Battle of Cloyd's Mountain. Dublin's economic recovery following the Civil War was slow until the town experienced a growth spurt after being chartered by the Virginia General Assembly in 1871.
