History of Stallings
Stallings is named for Matthew Thomas Stallings and his brother Martin Stallings. They purchased the land in the area for timber and farming in the early 1900's. The first businesses in the town were a store and a sawmill. Until the 1930s, Stallings and neighboring Indian Trail were trading centers for cotton. In the 1950's, US Highway 74 was built and promoted growth of the area from the Union County border all the way to Monroe.
