This is a small station on the Wabash Railroad in the southwestern part of Summit Township, about a mile east of
the Town of Red Rock. It was surveyed by N. J. Watkins on December 16, 1887, for Ellison R. and Nancy T. Wright,
and the plat was filed with the county recorder on the 25th of the following May. Four streets - Hickory, Black
Oak, Walnut and West - run north and south, and Maple and Locust streets run east and west. The original plat shows
twenty eight lots. Cordova has never grown to any considerable proportions. It has a general store, a postoffice,
a grain elevator and a few residences and does some shipping.
