The Town of North was founded as a result of railroad transportation. John F. North, George W. Pou, and Sampson A. Livingston donated 100 acres to create a rail depot and town on the South Bound Railroad Company's new rail line. Mr. North was influential in bringing the railroad to the area, hence, the town's name.

Rail lines brought not only new citizens to North but also telegraph lines and the lucrative cotton industry. Passenger trains ran through North on their way to Columbia, Savannah, Miami, and New York City. Two regular trains came through North every day, carrying in freight and goods and carrying out cotton.

Cotton was easily grown in the fertile soil around town and North was one of the best cotton markets in the area. Several gins outside town baled the cotton and large mills bid for the precious product  at the Town's cotton platform.
