Tiffin was a switch on the Texas and Pacific Railway in northern Eastland County. The switch was used for loading stone and rock. The community is said to have been named in 1880 by an Irish member of the railroad construction gang, who designated the spot as the place for tiffin (lunch). In 1925 and again in 1939 the population was reported as fifty-five, but that number had decreased to thirty by the late 1940s, when the town had a store and a church. After 1948 no further population estimates were available for Tiffin.
