Ridgetop Historical Society celebrates its 30th Year!
June19, 2014 the Ridgetop Historical Society will celebrate 30 years!
Our purpose is to collect and preserve items of historical interest to Ridgetop and promote the dissemination of historical information to the community and surrounding areas.
The organization relies completely on volunteers who are the vital ingredient to our durability. As April is National Volunteer Month, we want to celebrate and
thank all our volunteers who have assisted over these 30 years!
We will celebrate our
birthday at our general meeting on Thursday, May 15, at 6:00 p.m.,at the historic Highland Chapel in
Ridgetop.Over the years,the Ridgetop Historical Society has worked closely with the community to continue its commitment to enrich our common history.
In 2006,we partnered with the City of Ridgetop and the Ridgetop Park Board when they offered the beautiful and historical Wilson House, located at the
Ridgetop Station Park, as a site for the Society’s Museum. “We are dedicated to preserving the documents and other items which have had such an influence on this community and created so many memories. It strengthens our dedication every time we welcome visitors to the Wilson House and the museum to see their interest in our past,”says Historical Society President, Inez Johnson. The Ridgetop Historical Society Museum opens from May to October on Sundays from 1:30 p.m.to 4:30 p.m. Please come by and visit us beginning Sunday, May 4th. Many
dedicated volunteers and donors have contributed so much to this historic house and to the growth of the museum. Ridgetop and the Park Board have worked very hard to expand the park trail, add benches and maintain a great place to walk and enjoy nature as well.
In 2013, the City of Ridgetop, Ridgetop Garden Club and Robertson County Master Gardeners created the County’s first Arboretum at the Station Park. A lot of hard work and research resulted in placards identifying many beautiful trees throughout. The City of Ridgetop also makes available the Wilson House for weddings,receptions and other events. If you are interested in more details and costs, please call the City of Ridgetop at 615-859-0596. The City of Ridgetop, Park Board, Ridgetop Garden Club and the
Ridgetop Historical Society have recently been honored by the Robertson County Master Gardeners’ plan to include the Station Park on its Garden Tour this year on Saturday, June 7th.
Tickets for the tour, at a cost of $5.00, will be sold at the County Extension Office, the Chamber of Commerce in Springfield, and at the Potting Shed in Greenbrier a couple of weeks prior to the tour. The
Wilson House and museum will also be open for this
special occasion from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00p.m. If you would like more information about the Ridgetop Historical Society, please write to us at

My name is Ashley Danault and I work under a VA funded grant called Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF). I am looking for Veterans who are currently homeless or in imminent danger of becoming homless due to hardships. It is important to remember that homeless does not mean simply living on the streets. Homeless by definition is "lacking stable nighttime residence" this can mean sleeping on someone elses couch or living in transitional housing. Our grant covers 27 counties including Robertson, Davidson and Cheatham to name a few in TN and also several KY counties. If you know someone who could use help with attaining permanent housing please have them call me Ashley Danault at 931-217-7497.
We are trying to help the Ridgetop community by rounding up all the stray cats that have been breeding. We will be catching these cats (most young) this weekend and working with Pet Community Center.org we will have them all spayed/neutered on Monday. We would like to find them homes rather than release them back into the wild. If interested contact us at the AM Gas Station across from the fire/police station in Ridgetop (2 doors down from the post office and town hall). Ask for Dianne or Annette. It would be great if you want to come by and pick one out on Saturday/Sunday as they will be caged before being transported to the vet early Monday. They will be ready to go to a new home on Tuesday morning. Thanks for helping!
I would love to see some trees planted along the city sidewalk road passing through town. I would even be willing to donate for this type of project
There will be a class on "Care and Maintainance of Trees" given by Dwight Barnett, our State Forester, at the Wilson Home at Ridgetop Station Park on Wed., Jan. 30 at 8:30 Am. The Ridgetop Garden Club will provide coffee and donuts for all attending. The class will be about 2 hours followed by a walkaround the park afterward with practical application to the park trees. There will be no charge, all interested in the community are invited.
Hi. I'm new to the Ridgetop bulletin board. My husband and I drive a truck for a living and we are looking to make the Ridgetop area our new home. We love your area and are in search of a small apartment so that when we come thru we have a place to crash. Eventually, we would love to buy some property in the area and make our place of retirement.
Please feel free to contact me if you have or know of anything available. Your thoughts and or help is very much appreciated and welcome! Here is our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are with a very reputable company out of Louisville Kentucky and if anyone knows of a great place to park our rig in the area, that would be awesome too!
Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this beautiful area.
My husband and I have recently purchased a house in Ridgetop. We moved to the area a few months ago from IN. Cant wait to move into our home and our new community.
Just added some more photos to our website. If you have photos of Ridgetop and would like to share, please join and upload to our photo section. Thanks
