In the 1920’s and 1930’s there was quite a bit of cotton grown in the Fairmont area. Mr. A. N. Mitchell was the local cotton broker. Shown here is cotton being unloaded and readied for shipment at the depot. The house in the background was the home of Addie Thompson. It has since been moved west about 50 yards and rotated 90 degrees to face Railroad Street.

Many thanks to Jack Mitchell for contributing this photograph.
