Business[edit]

While I can see that a business with "worldwide" headquarters in Nolensville merits a mention, I think the Andrew Patton management offices thing is a bit much. There isn't room or need to mention every single business located in Nolensville, unless it is a business of note, or a major employer in the area. I would delete it.

Frank Hill Road - boundaries?[edit]

Is Frank Hill Road now within Davidson County? A recent account of a memorial service for Samuel Smith and other lynching victims in Nashville said that all three men were lynched in the Nashville area. Smith was taken from a hospital in Nashville, but back to the grocer's house on Frank Hill Rd, which accounts suggested was in Nolensville, and thus Williamson County. Does anyone know if boundaries changed after 1924? He was likely included in Nashville history because of being taken by the lynch mob from a Nashville hospital.

Move section related to 1996 and after[edit]

Moved section related to reincorporation in 1996 and later new residential and school development. Section about historic area related to buildings and events of the 19th and early 20th centuries, and belongs before that.Parkwells (talk) 14:51, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

"Negative content"?[edit]

An editor deleted a section about the lynching of Sam Smith in Nolensville in 1924, describing it as "negative content". Well, yes, these documented historic events were "negative", and affected the victim's family and descendants, if they had any. Such extrajudicial murders were part of racial oppression that was carried on for decades. It is factual, and is part of the history of the area, just as were events of the Civil War. I will shorten the entry and add it back. The new National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, AL has an installation that recognizes victims of lynchings; they need to be recognized locally, as well.

Drmies, thanks for your support on this. I'll look at it again. Since there is an account of the five lynchings in the county at Williamson Co article, I thought this entry could be limited to the Smith lynching. Also, the memorial plaque in Nashville is described in the article Lynching of Samuel Smith, and I was rethinking the reference to it here.Parkwells (talk) 15:55, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
