In 1826, Richard Oliver became the town's first postmaster.
The town was renamed Oliver's Springs in his honor. The town's name was briefly changed to Poplar Springs, and then to Oliver Springs. Oliver provided mail service from his 35-room mansion, which also served as an inn. He was the first to develop the commercial potential of the mineral springs. He would transport his guests between the springs and the inn. During the Civil War, the inn was used as a hospital by both sides. Find out more history at the wikipedia link to the left.

It was renamed briefly as Poplar Springs and then as Oliver Springs after the first postmaster, Richard Oliver, who also owned the first hotel built to capitalize on the area's mineral springs, used for centuries by Native Americans.
