1. The McCarty Neighborhood Marker
Inscription. William Scott and Frances Brown McCarty began laying out a neighborhood here in 1927. By 1950, influential Dalton residents had established one of the city’s earliest subdivisions. McCarty residents pioneered and maintained the Dalton carpet and textile industry whose products are used worldwide. Long-time residents and sons of the neighborhood’s founders, John Brown McCarty co-founded Star Dye Company with Clarence Shaw in the mid-1940s, and Frank Brown McCarty founded McCarty Chenille in the 1940s, became manufacturing vice-president at Barwick Mills in the 1950s, helped establish E&B Carpets in the 1960s, and mentored others in the industry.
