Built in 1902 by Henry Hunter Mayberry
(1861-1931), a native of Williamson County
and a man of integrity, broad vision, and
generosity. He was the developer of Franklin's
water system and gave the only spring large
enough to service it. In 1908 he was the
builder and president of the Nashville-
Franklin Interurban, the first in the state.
Its hourly service resulted in increased
business growth with Nashville. Mr. Mayberry
also built the Nashville-Gallatin Interurban.
