ⓘ Coldwater, Mississippi

The current town square of Coldwater is about two miles south of the Coldwater River, hence the name. The original town began in 1856, called the village of Elm Grove. Construction of the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad through here in 1858 stimulated development. Rows of stores and other businesses developed on both sides of the tracks, along with houses of worship. Coldwater was officially incorporated in 1872. At that time, the Town was located in DeSoto County and was a mile square with the railroad depot at the center. The area was developed for cotton plantations and Coldwater was a trading center.

In 1873, during reconstruction, the legislature organized the County of Tate from parts of DeSoto, Marshall, and the counties tunic. Coldwater was in a new district. The town began to grow with the influx of settlers from Virginia, the Carolinas, Alabama, and other areas in search of a better life for themselves and their families. There was according to the census of 1890 397 residents of Coldwater. By 1884 there were 96 small schools in Tate County: 54 white and 42 black. They were mostly one teacher, one room log houses with split logs for seats.

Coldwater has been growing in numbers. However, periodic river flooding plagued the town, although it is also the basis of soil fertility of agricultural land. The corps of engineers was built the project of Arkabutla lake and dam along the Coldwater river in the early 1940-ies of the United States. Residents believed that they needed to move, and the city was moved and reconstructed on the ground approximately one and a half miles South of its original location.
