Bikers on Peddlers Ridge

Drury Ridge Road aka Peddlers Ridge

965-1333 Drury Ridge Rd
Hartsville, TN 37074

During the 1930’s Depression Era, country stores sent peddlers out from Highway 10 and Highway 52 onto Drury Ridge Road so that people living here could buy needed supplies from the peddlers. People also bartered chicken eggs to the peddlers for groceries. This is how the ridge became known as Peddlers Ridge.

John Drury came to the Ridge from Virginia in 1828, first settling in Meadorville. He had acquired about 600 acres in a land grant. Drury Cemetery, located on Drury Ridge Road, started in 1835.
