DescriptionIn the 1800s the community of Effingham found its start when travelers heading west along the Old Cumberland Trail decided to settle in the richly fertile area. As major interstates emerged there during the 1960s, Effingham blossomed, with a variety of manufacturing businesses and distribution centers setting up shop in the city.
