Hickman County

A huge percentage of Hickman County's population resides within the borders of the emerging community called "East." This encompasses the old communities of Bon Aqua, Lyles, Wrigley, and the surrounding area. A few neighborhoods keep some traditions alive, while others are in the process of developing into larger communities. Many communities, such as Shady Grove and Pleasantville's fire departments, also encourage public service volunteering.

Aetna Community

Aetna is located on Highway 48, in the southern portion near the Lewis county line. Spring-fed Piney Creek runs through the area. People settled here after the Indian treaty of 1818, and the town experienced an economic boom during the mid to late 1800s after the discovery of iron ore. However, the Depression of 1893 caused several iron furnaces to close in the following years. Pioneer families include:

Berrymand | Hick | Hinson | Kimmin | McClaren | Milam | Morrison | Murray | Wade | Walker


Anderson Bend

When Colonel Shinn of North Carolina fought in the Revolutionary War, he was rewarded with 2,500 acres of land in Tennessee. In 1805, the colonel bequeathed the land to Robert Anderson, who built a home on what is now Highway 50. The community was then named Anderson Bend, after their family. Isaac Perry became the Post Master of the first post office, called Bluff Point, which was established in 1855. Pioneer families include:

Baker | Bates | Bingham | McCaleb | George Henn | Hooten | Hunt | James | Miller Mobley | Prince | Regeon | Smith | Stephenson | Tucker | Walker Young
