Cottrell is an unincorporated crossroads community in north Clackamas County, Oregon, United States.[1] It was named for the family of Mrs. Charles Andrews, whose maiden name was Cottrell.[2] There was a Cottrell post office from 1894 until 1904; it probably closed when Rural Free Delivery was extended to the area.[2] There is also a Cottrell school a mile east of the locale, and there was a Cottrell station on the defunct Mount Hood Electric Railway line about a mile to the north.[2] The now-abandoned station was across the county line in Multnomah County.[2]
