Map of Mitchell County with Peppers highlighted.Community in western Mitchell County on Bee Creek.The name of the community may come from the fact that spearmint and peppermint grew in the “bottoms” of that area. The Peppers Post Office was located on Peppers Branch near the old Mills Harrell House on Harrell Hill Road. This would currently be near the intersection of Byrd Road and Harrell Hill Road. Mary Masters Harrell was the post mistress.
