In the past couple of weeks we have taken the time to explore our quaint, little downtown. There is a lot of building going on----they've torn down the old City Hall and built a new one---- which is gorgeous. They are taking the opportunity to build a whole new city center and just, generally, make the whole area more appealing and accessible.
So we walked all over the place to see what is out there. It's a happening little place with some great shops and restaurants. There are several areas like this with benches surrounding a little fountain. Many of the original buildings date from just after the Civil War, though I think there are a couple left from before the war.
