Inscription.  
Named for Frederick Norwood and John S. Butterfield, founders of the Norwood-Butterfield Lumber Company, Norfield was incorporated in 1894. In 1900, Butterfield became sole owner of the company and Denkmann Lumber Co. operated the sawmill from 1915 until 1933. The Natchez, Columbia and Mobile R.R. hauled timber over 30 miles to the mill. By 1930, Norfield was the second-largest town in Lincoln County, with electricity, churches, stores, a school, theater, hotel, doctor's office, and golf course. The post office closed in 1952.
