Remembering Eagle Hill

By Rickey Robertson 

In most communities there is one location that is special and very unique. Some communities have buildings, bridges, houses, creeks, and other unique items that pertain to that location. To the folks who live in Peason, we also have a landmark that is special to each and every one of us and is also of historic interest, Eagle Hill. Eagle Hill is the second highest point in the state, with Driskoll Mountain in North Louisiana being the highest point. At one time after all the timber had been harvested by Peavy Wilson Lumber Company, and you could see Eagle Hill looming on the horizon. Now with the timber having grown back around it, you can’t actually see the old hill from Hwy. 118 anymore, but you can know the exact location because you will see a very large and tall radio tower reaching skyward that is located right on the top of Eagle Hill.
