Peaden’s  Country Grill was opened by Guy and Flossie Peaden on July 4th, 1957. It was a good ole country store and grill where friends and neighbors could be sure to get great food for a fair price. In 1974, the family moved down the road opening a larger restaurant. The success of Peaden’s encouraged a renovation in 1998. On February 18, 2010 there was a fire at the restaurant.  This was a blow to the community, and customers asked repeatedly when is Peaden’s going to open again? On March 31, 2011 the new and beautiful Peaden’s Grill and Restaurant opened to rave reviews for all who loved the family restaurant for so long.
