Piney

Piney (Pine Ridge) is a small rural community in northwestern Harrison County on Farm Road 2208 twelve miles northwest of Marshall and one mile from the Marion county line. It was founded sometime prior to 1901, when Pine Ridge post office was opened. The community had four schools in 1904, and Pine Ridge school district served eighty-two White pupils and ninety-nine Black pupils that year. The post office closed in 1908, but Pine Ridge schools still served some 190 pupils in 1937. By 1961 the town was called Piney, and it had a church, a cemetery, and several scattered residences.
