With the high agricultural profile of Franklin and Southampton County, it was with the opening of the Camp Lumber Mill in 1887 that the manufacturing sector began to expand. The Camp Lumber Mill became Union Camp, which was eventually bought by International Paper. This lot is near the IP mill, located on the eastern boundary of the city, and produces lumber, pulp, paper products and other chemical by-products. IP shut down operations temporarily but since has resumed production and brought an increase of jobs to the area. Whether relocating for employment or in need of an affordable lot, look no further. Bring your plans, this acre just needs a well and septic and you are ready to break ground!
