Buyers’ investments, talents boost community
By SUE WATSON
Holly Springs Mayor Andre’ DeBerry has said the community does not see itself as outsiders do. And outsiders bring not only their investments that are saving historic properties to town but their varied talents and vision.
Without individuals who are excited about the quality of life a small town like Holly Springs offers, historic homes would crumble and vanish from this beautiful town, he said.
Some who have recently brought their resources and talents to restore and preserve structures include the following.
Alderman Nancy Hutchens agreed with the mayor.
“We live here and we don’t recognize and appreciate the hidden treasures we have here in Holly Springs the way outsiders do who come here to make an investment,” she said. “I wish these people will take an active role in our Main Street Program. Sometimes they see things we overlook.”
