Harmony Ridge Community

Founded in 1870, among first settlers were the Families of Andrew, Mark, and Polk Oliver, Stephen M. Lewis, William Faver, Matt Senterfitt, Asa J. Howard.

The only building (a two story fram structure housing Cumberland Presbyterian Church and local school was built by citizens in 1877.  Andrew and Mary Oliver gave land for building and cemetery.  Community got its name because people worked in Harmony on construction.  Second story was removed in 1911 and brick veneer was added in 1960.

Cemetery Group meets yearly  although community is inactive.
