Cabot (Lonoke County) is one of Arkansas’s fastest-growing cities. Incorporated in 1891, the city, which has become a bedroom community to Little Rock (Pulaski County), was once an agricultural center and railroad shipping point for the area. Cotton is among the crops that are no longer commercially cultivated in the area. In this early 1900s photograph, farmers have brought wagon loads of cotton to town for sale to local brokers.
