Ruff was a farming community three miles from Ridgeway near Branom in western Hopkins County. A post office was established there in 1899 but closed in 1905. The community was never very large, and by the mid-1930s it was no longer shown on county highway maps. In 1948 it had a voting box at the Branom school. By the early 1960s only a few scattered houses remained at Ruff. No population estimates are available.
