What is now the City of Ridgeland was
first settled in 1832 when William Austin
purchased land in this area near the
Natchez Trace. James Yellowley bought
the property in 1853. He sold it in 1896 to
Gorton Nichols and Edward Treakle, who
formed the Highland Colony Company
and changed the name to Ridgeland. First
incorporated on December 29, 1899, this
city owes much of its early growth to the
coming of the Illinois Central Railroad
in 1865, which boosted the area's
produce and farming operations.
