After weeks of bickering among its neighbors, the tiny village of Franklinville in northeast Baltimore County is on the verge of adding another chapter to its mill-town history.County Council Chairman Vincent J. Gardina, a Democrat whose 5th District includes Franklinville, said yesterday he will introduce legislation to designate it as a county historic district."It has a lot of merit," he said. "In the past, we have not always moved to protect the past in Baltimore County."But his decision to back the legislation has not been easy.

When Judy Beard was a girl, Franklinville, the tiny mill village a mile from her Upper Falls home, was off-limits."We were forbidden to go there. It was a different kind of town; there were transients and the houses were rented. But we went anyway; we'd ride our bikes and fill our canteens at the pump across from the general store," she said.Things are quite different today for the 46-year-old real estate broker and for Franklinville itself.Mrs. Beard not only lives in the heart of the tree-shaded village but is a leader in a joint project with Upper Falls residents to have the two enclaves nominated for the national and Baltimore County historic district registers.
