Akridge Farm Supply was founded in 1933 when Thomas Ruble (T.R.) & his wife Rosalie Akridge opened up on Main Street in Fredonia, KY. In 1959 their only son, Dean joined the business. Following Dean’s arrival, the store relocated to “the old cheese factory” building on Wyatt Street which is now its present location.
In 1982, a second store was added in Eddyville and in 1988 both stores joined the Ace Hardware cooperative.
In 1989, Dean’s son Paul joined the family business. Paul and store personnel moved the store in 1994 from its 3,000 sq ft building to its current location, a new 10,000 sq. ft. store on Fairview Avenue.
Today, Paul’s son Logan works at the Eddyville location making Akridge Farm Supply & Ace Hardware a fourth generation family business.
