In 1899, W.J. Beasley and family came from Lick Creek to Franklin to establish a home and lumber mill. By 1920, Beasley was paying taxes on his home, sawmill and 24 rental houses valued at over $10,000 in total. Originally, the rental homes were built to provide housing for the mill hands and their families. After the mill closed, "Beasley Town" became an integrated community with low-rental housing for blue-collar workers and domestic servants. Families living along Carter and Granbury Streets were Langley, Peyton, Scales, Fitts, Beard, Hood, McCullough, Spencer, Robinson, Turner, Dixon, Refugee, and Williams. Pokey Morton maintained a store on Carter Street.
In memory of Ruby Hammox Langley
