In 1898, Reverend L. L. Sams began a sideline of selling church furniture. In 1946, his sons began manufacturing, and in less than 20 years, L. L. Sams & Sons became the largest exclusive manufacturer of church furniture in the world. In 1998, as the company considered relocation to a modern facility, the vision was formed to transform the former factory into a residential community. Today, LL Sams Historic Lofts are fully renovated lofts that include loft ceilings, hardwood or concrete floors, original historic brick or masonry, expansive windows and structural beams and contemporary amenities including a washer/dryer in each unit and modern kitchens. Voted Best Loft Apartments, this gated community is adjacent to Baylor University. Residents have access to exceptional community amenities such as a saltwater pool with an expansive deck.
