NEW TIRA, TX
NEW TIRA, TEXAS. New Tira, a farming community on State highways 19 and 154, 1½ miles west of old Tira and twelve miles north of Sulphur Springs in north central Hopkins County, was established in 1947, when Erwin Chapman built a store and gin at the site and B. C. Lawson moved his store there from Weirville. The stores later closed, and by the mid-1960s only a few scattered houses remained. In the late 1980s New Tira was a dispersed rural community.
