Around 1825, the Hendricks Family (also spelled Hendrix) arrived and settled in a valley near Richland Creek in Greene County. The family skills included blacksmithing, grist milling, and making stoneware. There were the pioneer skills that assisted the development of a thriving community. In 1831, a post office was established with the name of Hendricksville.
