RIDERVILLE, TEXAS. Riderville, on State Highway 149 four miles northwest of Carthage in north central Panola County, was settled after the Civil War. In the mid-1930s the small community had a school, several stores, a church, a sawmill, and a number of houses. The stores and school closed later, but in the mid-1960s a church, a cemetery, and a few scattered dwellings still remained in the area. In the early 1990s Riderville was a dispersed farming community with a population of fifty. The population remained the same in 2000.
