Tye is a town in Taylor County Texas. Tye is about a 12 minute drive from Abilene. It is about 8 miles west of Abilene. Tye is also part of the Abilene, Texas Metropolitan Statistical Area.
In 1901 the name of the post office and community was changed to Tye, to honor John P. Tye, who served as the first postmaster and as a Methodist minister.
During World War II, Tye field (which was once Abilene’s airport) was constructed just south of town. For the Korean War, the field was enlarged and the runway expanded and resurfaced. It was reactivated as Abilene Air Force Base in 1956 before being renamed Dyess Air Force Base.
