HISTORY by Tony Howe: This location was first called Corrine after the daughter of Sid King, who donated land for the right-of-way of the NO&NE. The name was later shortened to Corry. W. L. Fewell built a sawmill here about 1900 and renamed the town to Savoy. The railroad had a passing siding and house track here at one time. 

Corrine was first listed in employee timetables in May 1884 with a 60-car siding. The name was changed to Corry in the 11-8-1896 timetable, and changed again to Savoy in the 8-2-1903 timetable, which showed the siding as being 68 cars long. It was extended to 80 cars in the 2-5-1905 timetable. The first Southern Railway employee timetable dated 3-4-1917 showed the siding as 73 cars long and a 15-car house track at Savoy. The siding was extended again to 90 cars in the 7-18-1943 timetable.
