On the banks of the White River in Cotter, Arkansas, long famous for its excellent trout fishing, one of the most remarkable sites in the Ozarks has been dedicated.

Cotter, Arkansas

The Anglin-Tinnon Railroad Workers Memorial was built to honor Cotter's railroad history and the workers who lived it.

The memorial, built by the Cotter Care Crews, is located in Cotter's Big Spring Park. It was dedicated on May 2, 2003, just prior to the opening of Cotter's second annual Great Cotter Trout Festival. The Cotter Care Crews also have a display of railroad memorabilia in the Baxter County Heritage Museum in Gassville.

     The railroad's role in Cotter has diminished over the decades, but its construction, beginning in 1901, was responsible for the establishment and growth of Cotter as a boomtown, once the largest town in North Arkansas.

     Come with us now for a tour of the Anglin-Tinnon Railroad Workers Memorial, on the banks of the White River in Cotter, Arkansas, Trout Capital USA.
