"We plan to apply for a grant in 2012 to paint both the south and west walls and other areas that have been painted previously. Areas that have not been painted cannot be painted because of rules related to being listed on the National Register of Historic Places."
"We have had a really good year in 2011, with visitors from many different states as well as from the local area," Harrell said. "We have had several fund raisers, such as bake sales, hot dog and hot chocolate for sale at the Christmas parade, and tee shirts, coffee cups, and other items for sale all year. We had our first quilt show and hope to make it an annual event. We had our second book signing by Charlene Pillow Little who grew up here."
