Historical development

This site was originally called Winfree’s Cove, after an early pioneer settler named A. B. J. Winfree. In 1871, the first cotton gin was operating there under the ownership of William Icet. Nine years later, Icet sold the gin and would run a shipyard with the help of his two sons until 1915.[4] The post office at Cove was first opened in 1894. The Icet family also operated a sawmill at the site, which had a population of 150 residents by 1920. After the 1940’s, the nearby established chemical plants would help boost the population. The town became incorporated in 1973.
