Carroll Springs was just off Farm Road 1615, twelve miles southeast of Athens in far southern Henderson County. It was evidently founded around the time of the Civil War and was named for a nearby spring. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a school, and a number of houses. After World War II the school closed. In the early 1990s only a church, a cemetery, and a few houses remained.
