Main points from the conversation:
Barn Again Project- use unemployed to help restore historic barns in the county. "Habitat for
History" WPA project? Hickory Ridge Homestead- use for a new cultural museum, open it
up for Appalachian crafts. Blair Farm off Bamboo use for cultural museum? Mary Henson home off Bamboo could that become a new visitor center? Walking tours throughout town, in ground
markers designating historic sites. DVD of walking tours set up on continious loop @ Jones
House, possibly a class project of ASU students to provide the map . Year around Farmers market on the old Shadowline property.

Action steps:
