Latham, Tennessee

Some excerpts were taken from "Weakley County" by Virginia C. Vaughan (1983)

The community of Latham was originally settled around 1850. Latham had a thriving business community until Tennessee Highway 118 was rerouted further north. With the diversion of traffic business declined and relocated to other areas. In the town's hey-day, Latham had a gristmill, a blacksmith, a drug store and a large general store.
