Readyville is an unincorporated community primarily located in Cannon County, Tennessee, United States. Its zip code is 37149. It is approximately midway between Murfreesboro and Woodbury. The community was founded by and named for Charles Ready, an early settler who arrived in the area around 1800. His son, also named Charles Ready, was born in Readyville in 1802 and later became a member of the United States House of Representatives for Tennessee's 5th congressional district. Downtown Readyville is located along the east fork of the Stones River. Construction was completed on John Bragg Highway sometime before 1997, which provides a more direct connection between Murfreesboro and Woodbury, circumventing Readyville. Formerly, the only way to travel between the two much larger cities was to travel through downtown Readyville. This is no longer necessary, and traffic through Readyville has dropped significantly. Historic Readyville Mill, which was built by Charles Ready in 1812, has been brought back to life after once being burned to the ground after the American Civil War. It is privately owned and open to the public for breakfast and self-guided tours on most Saturdays. The mill is located almost directly across from the United States Post Office in the downtown area. Pilot Knob, located a few miles south of downtown Readyville in the Rutherford county portion of the community, is a large hill that rises approximately 600 feet from its base. At the peak, one can look to the West and see beyond Murfreesboro on a clear day. Smaller hills block the view of Woodbury to the East. Pilot Knob is privately owned by Herman Peterman Waddell, Sr. and has signs posted prohibiting trespassing. Located very near Pilot Knob in a forested section, a Japanese-style pagoda complete with ceramic tile roof was constructed in 2010 and is currently inhabited by local residents. The pagoda is also privately owned and has signs posted prohibiting trespassing.
