Named for Alfred, Lord Tennyson by an English settler who arrived in 1882, the community received a post office in 1892. Tennyson began to grow after the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railway built through the area in 1910, but it began to shrink when its local cotton farming economy shrank in the 1920s.
