History

Originally constructed in 1904 by DA Tompkins, the Little Mountain Oil and Fertilizer Company ginned cotton and pressed cotton seed into oil. The company also used the remnants of seed and husk to produce fertilizer for local farmers. The mill was built near the railroad to provide convenient transport to market.

As years passed the building has housed a cannery and a construction company. Abandoned for more than two decades, the building was purchased by a husband and wife team and has been completely renovated to become a premiere event venue.

The newly renovated venue has ample space for your guests as well as private upstairs getaways for both the bride and the groom. 



The Cotton Press has maintained the historical integrity of the building while updating the look. Reopening the window arches to the original size and replacing the white painted doors with natural finished ones added a dramatic effect. The building now offers a brick wall for event privacy on the large outdoor patio.
