A North Knoxville community is welcoming a local business into its neighborhood.
Holston Gases has moved its offices and some of its facilities to Baxter Avenue at the site of the old Brookside Mills. The Beaumont community is across the interstate from that location.
Friday evening, it greeted Holston Gases to the neighborhood and presented its owner Bill Baxter with a special gift.
"We've been really excited about cleaning up the area. And we've very excited to be working with Holston Gases in the near future," said Natasha Murphy with the Beaumont Community Organization.
The Beaumont Community Organization presented Holston Gases owner Bill Baxter with a photograph of the old Brookside Mills dating back to the 1940s. The panoramic picture is of U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt speaking before a large crowd at the Old Mill.
