A railroad station called Kerriston, named after president of the Kerry Timber Company, was established in 1900 but was moved six miles in 1904 when the original Kerriston station became known as Hemlock. t was named for A. S. Kerry, president of Kerry Timber Company, which cut timber in the early 1900's. A post office was established in 1903/04. The town's main industry was logging cedar trees and producing bricks. Kerriston bricks were widely used in the early 1900's. The town began to decline in the 1930's before finally being abandoned.
