From the Historical Marker:
Cottonport stands on the site of Mayfield Station, a fort constructed as protection from Indian raids. Built on the site of an Indian town, the station was attacked by Indians in 1788. John Frost, later a captain in the War of 1812, came here from Newberry, South Carolina. In the early 1800's. While building his brick home, he lived in a log house believed to be the present smoke house. With the addition of a cotton gin, general store, grist mill and post office, Cottonport became the commercial center for the surrounding community.
