Built in the early 1920's, this trough sits in its original location, a relic of a period long passed. Travel from town to town was primarily done by mule pulled wagons. The area was plentiful with corn and cotton making such trade activity among residents popular. The water pouring into the trough by spigot was provided by the city to encourage trading. By World War II, most of the trading rural population had begun using the automobile for travel between towns thereby eliminating the trough's purpose. The trough now remains as a reminder of a period in the business, cultural and social history of the Lincoln County area.
