Incorporated in 1906, Reedsville was named for James Reed, the owner of the land on which a large portion of the town is located. The Phillips-Jones Electric Vacuum Cleaner plant operated in Reedsville through the early 1900s. The town's population today is 450.
The Ruby Research Farm is more than 900 acres dedicated to horse and beef research, along with forage production. The farm was home to prized Quarter Horses, Saddlebreds, and Standardbreds in the 1970s under private ownership.

Horses returned in 2009 for hands-on equine studies, along with weekend horse shows and other community events.
