The area which is now considered Dublin was originally inhabited by Native Americans, while American settlement began in the year eighteen two. The Shields family, which was one of the first settling families of Dublin, is credited with giving Dublin its current name in honor of the Irish city of the same name.

Dublin was officially incorporated as a city in the year nineteen eighty seven, almost immediately after the community's population surpassed five thousand residents.
