A Village Charter was obtained in 1899 with a land acquisition by the family of Mary Jane Rule. With the coming of the Yazoo Delta railroad which ran from Moorhead to Ruleville; Ruleville grew by leaps and bounds. The story goes that the term “Yaller Dawg” came from a mispronunciation by an African American who said the Y.D. for the Yazoo Delta Railroad stood for “Yaller Dawg due to all the yellowed colored mud that often made the train jump the tracks.

By the turn of the century Ruleville had a total population of 226.

In the early 1900’s there were 3 public gins one of which was owned by the Rule brothers, a family practitioner and an excellent public school system.
