History

An advocate of education, Paul D. Camp founded the lumber company, Camp Manufacturing, along with his brothers in 1887. Later, after establishing a paper mill, the Franklin facility became a part of Union Camp Corporation, then eventually International Paper. Company officials announced the mill closure in 2009 and then mill repurposing plans in 2011. The mill began its “high quality fluff” production in June 2012. The college in Franklin was built on over 80 acres of land donated by Paul D. Camp’s daughters, Willie Younts and Ruth Camp Campbell, almost 50 years after his death.
