Established in 1780 as the first settlement in Montgomery County, Renfroe's Station was located 1.4 miles of here, on the north side of the Red River at the mouth of Parson's Creek. Moses Renfroe's party broke from the John Donelson flotilla, which later settled in Nashville. Lasting only three months, the Renfroe settlement fell to Indian hostilities.
