Inscription. The early settlement of “Petersburg” was granted a post office in 1858. At that time, the village’s name was changed to Arrington for the nearby creek. Among the early families were Buchanan, Couch, Crockett, Duff, King, Morris, Paschall, Price, Roberts, and Sayers. Four churches were established; Bellview Cumberland Presbyterian (1852), Hopewell A.M.E. (1876), Patton’s Chapel A.M.E. (1882), and First Baptist (1968).
