Historicial Development: M. A. Graley, in 1911, secured a mortgage with Texarkana Lumber Company in order to get a planing mill, steam machinery, four mules, and four wagons. A deed of trust, executed nine days earlier than the one with Texarkana Lumber, reveals that Graley had a sawmill five miles west of Springdale. He perhaps had bought the old Spencer Mill there.
