The origin of Reddick relates to George Bender Reddick (born circa 1848). He and his wife Callie Cottrell established a hotel and store in 1880 at the site which came to be known as Reddick. The town appears to have gotten its name from the practice of locals saying something like "I'm going to Reddick's". The town was formally established in 1882.
