COTTON GINNING TIME BRINGS OUT GRAYSON COUNTY FARMERS

This cotton gin at Ethel, photographed in 1898, shows how Grayson County farmers brought their produce to town.  Horse-drawn wagons carried the cotton to the remote gin in the southwestern part of the county.  The tall smokestack at the right eliminated smoke produced from the cotton burrs.  Cotton was a major crop in early days.
