A town at the junction of the Frisco and Kennett to Caruthersville Railroad. The town was established in 1894 at the time of the building of the railroads, although a settlement had been made there earlier.
The school district was established in 1875. When a post office was applied for in 1896, the name Gayoso City was suggested, but rejected because of the similarity to Gayoso, so the name was coined from the name of Dr. G. Hayes, who owned land there, and the syllable "ti." Louis Houck, who helped lay out the town says, "The name is from the family name of Dr. Hayes and the word "ti" or "tie" which refers to the high ridge which ties this place to Caruthersville.
