    The Reks Family were early settlers and the town was named for them. Hearing the name before seeing a sign leads one to believe it is "Wreck Hill" and that some monstrous accident crashed its way into the local history. There's a hill though and it's possible and even likely that Rek Hill has had their share of wrecks.

    Currently (2000) the only businesses in Rek Hill are an antique shop and a feed store. The school has been part of the Fayetteville school system since the 1950s.
