Abstract:
Cottendale, located near Falkland, was the renowned home of two extraordinary people: Robert Randolph Cotten and his wife, Sallie Southall Cotten. Both were involved in local, State and national cultural, governmental, military, agricultural, and business activities. In 1931, Pitt County named the eight mile stretch of road from Bruce to Greenville the “Sallie Southall Cotton Memorial Drive,” and numerous clubs paid to have dogwoods, sycamore, crepe myrtle and cedars planted along the road in her honor. The trees were cut down in 1951 to widen the road. On March 25, 1961, Cottendale, with its antique furniture, silver and family portraits, burned to the ground.
