Cotter is a city in Baxter County, Arkansas, United States. The population was 1,078 at the 2010 census.HistoryNative American Bluff Dwellers were the original inhabitants of the area now known as Cotter. When Native Americans were moved westward on the Trail of Tears, Approximately 1000Cherokees crossed just a short distance upriver from the current location of Downtown Cotter.Exploration and settlementIn 1819, Henry Schoolcraft was exploring the Ozarks and spent a night in the Cotter area. He said of the area, White River is one of the most beautiful and enchanting streams, and by far the most transparent, which discharge their waters into the Mississippi... We here behold the assembled tributaries flowing in a smooth, broad. deep, and majestic current... skirted at a short distance by mountains of the most imposing grandeur.... extreme limpidity and want of colour... was early seized upon by the French traders on first visiting this stream, in calling it "La Rivière Blanche" (White River).Future President, Herbert Hoover, spent the summer of 1892 helping Geologist John C. Branner survey the Northern Ozarks. By the early 1900s, there were many mining companies active in both Baxter, and Marion Counties. Cotter quickly became a central point where minerals could be shipped via Steamboat to much larger cities in Central Arkansas or Southern Missouri.
