    "REILLY SPRINGS, TEXAS. Reilly Springs (Reily Springs), a ruralcommunity nine miles southeast of Sulphur Springs at the junction ofFarm roads 1567 and 2560 in southeastern Hopkins County, was named forJames Reily, who in 1841 and 1842 bought up several tracts of land inthe county that had been given to soldiers as pay for service in theTexas Revolution. One of the early wagon trails from Shreveport,Louisiana, passed through the land. A camping place at a group ofsprings grew into a village called Reily Springs. After the Civil Wara number of businesses were established in the area, including twogins, a gristmill, a sawmill, and a brick kiln. In 1867 Steve Tuckerbuilt a store and gin, and a tanyard operated in the community forseveral years. A post office was granted in 1871, but the post officeofficials mistakenly changed the spelling to Reilly."
