Pea Ridge is a city in Benton County, Arkansas, United States. The population of Pea Ridge was 4,794 at the 2010 census, which was a 104.3 percent increase over the 2000 census number of 2,346. The official history of the town dates to August 6, 1850, when its first post office was established. The town was laid out by Robert Carroll Foster, with Robert H. Wallace serving as the first postmaster. At first, the town's name was one word, Pearidge, but it soon was changed to two. The name is derived from a combination of the physical location of the original settlement and for the hog peanuts or turkey peas that had been originally cultivated by Native American tribes centuries before European settlement. It is not known exactly how long the Native Americans who occupied the area that became northwest Arkansas were here. But it is known that the Osage Indians were roaming on lands north of the Arkansas River. They were roving bands, very venturesome, and known to delight in making war on their neighbors. The Quapaw tribe also roamed northwest Arkansas. They loved fishing, hunting and a more peaceful way of life, unlike the fighting Indians. It's thought that the tribes of this area were more settled and were actually farmers in their way. The city's namesake wild peas are believed to be a product of this early farming, since it would have taken many years of preparation and cultivation to produce them.Prior to the American Civil War, the area roads were few and undeveloped. Access from other regions was by horse, wagon or stagecoach.
